*Congratulations to all students involved in the school play, “Dorothy in Wonderland”, last week!  A fantastic job was done by all!  Special thanks to Kelly Brennan Lefever & Erin Pyott for directing the cast & crew, Adrienne Burge for coordinating the costumes, and Laura McCamant for designing the set.  Thank you as well to the many parents who helped in many ways through-out the play.  We couldn’t have done this without all the volunteers!

*The Art Show & Project Fair are returning to Nitrauer Elementary on Thursday, March 15 from 7 – 8pm.
