Ms. Harris is looking for Kindergarten and 1st Grade students who are interested in performing on March 7th at 6:45 PM for Specials Night.

Because the performance space is small, Ms. Harris will only be able to take a limited number of students. Performance spots will be assigned on a first come first serve basis. No after school rehearsals are required because students are learning the music during specials time.

 

You will receive a confirmation email with more details. If Ms. Harris is not able to place your student in the performance, your child will be placed on a waiting list. Please note, that filling out this survey does not guarantee your child a spot in the performance.
