The Grizzly Growl 12/13/18
Posted 12/17/18

The Grizzly Growl – December 13, 2018

The 5th Grade Music students are getting ready for their first performance of the year.  Since there is overcrowding with the large number of student performers and audience members, we have split the audience into two concerts (however, all of the 5th graders will be performing in both of the two concerts) If your child is in these classes - Balck, Hodges or Mednick - the concert you will attend will be held Tuesday, Dec. 18th @ 8:15-8:55am.  Please be aware that parking can sometimes be difficult for school functions, so plan ahead. We look forward to seeing you there for some holiday cheer!
