Your hard work and dedication allowed us to feel connected to our community, which was so important and comforting particularly given the circumstances of this year.

It was a wonderful opportunity for students to highlight their talents and gain a sense of purpose and accomplishment. The Musical is opportunity to put whole-child approach to education we use in action, and I thank you for your enormous contribution in helping the School create a well-rounded environment for our students. I am consistently impressed with the ease and apparent smoothness of the show.
