Our class leads chapel this Wednesday!

Please come to watch our performance as we lead chapel on Wednesday morning in the auditorium! We will have two performances: The first for grades 3-5 from 8:30-9:00am, and the second for grades K-2 from 9:05-9:25am. Sign in at the front desk and then come down the red stairs; there will be seats for visitors. We haven't had much time to prepare since it is so early in the school year, but our class has been working hard and will finish on Monday and Tuesday this week. We are looking forward to the final product! Hope to see you then!

Note from Mrs. Brumley about Crusader Chorale

Chorale lunch rehearsals begin this week! Starting this Tuesday (the 17th), the girls come into the music room, and Wednesday the boys come in. This becomes a routine: Tuesdays for girls and Wednesdays for boys.

Person of the Week
