Fourth Grade Talent Show
Students in our fourth grade participated in the Annual Fourth Grade Talent Show. This year, students performed in our assembly on Friday, March 7. There were a number of very creative acts, including piano, guitar, drums, a garage band video, and an all-girl musical presentation. Thanks go out to Mrs. Donna Deininger, our wonderful music teacher, for coordinating this program. Congratulations to fourth grade students.
