NUTCRACKER

Congratulations to all 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade Performing Arts students. I am so proud of everything you have accomplished in such a short couple of weeks. Casting was hard as you all did so wonderful! I did have to make sure casting was done so that roles were in the class that would be doing the same dance as the ensemble so that made it even harder. Great job everyone!
