Also, our Kindergarten chorus concert has been rescheduled for this week, Tuesday, March 20.  If your child is participating, please have him/her here at school at 6:30.  One last thing, we will be celebrating the arrival of Spring on Friday, March 30 with an egg hunt.  If you are able, please send in a bag of plastic eggs along with a small surprise in the eggs.  Please avoid sending in candy, as some have food allergies.  A more detailed not will come home in the red folder this week.  Thank you!
