Weekly Update (9/30/18)

Good morning,

It was nice seeing some of you yesterday at Homecoming! I hope everyone survived the first full week of school. I’ve decided to add some interesting things to the Weekly Updates such as quotes, international holidays, etc. Have another wonderful full week!

Scroll down completely to read information pertaining to your performing group(s)!

Reminder- Students, parents, and administrators receive these emails. If at any point you would like to be removed from the “Weekly Updates”, just email me, and I will take you off.

All my best,

Mrs. Feinman
