Little Mermaid Play

Our K3-3rd grades will be attending the play the Little Mermaid at the Springer Theater on Friday, December 9, 2016.  The play will begin at 9:30.  If you would like for your child to attend, please return the attached permission slip and payment by Tuesday, November 8, 2016. Please remember that a parent or guardian of K3-K5 students will have to transport and attend the play with them, since we are not allowed to transport students this age.  The cost of the play will be $10.00 per person.  If students in these grade levels do not attend, then they will need to stay home that day since no classes will be offered while on the field trip. Please contact the office if you have any questions
