Final Details for Music Makers Concert

The Music Makers spring concert is only a few days away!  Join us on Monday, May 6th for a fun-filled show featuring music from some of our favorite kid's movies.  Here are the details:

-Performances are at 1:45 and 7:00 PM.

-Students should arrive for the evening performance by 6:45 PM and should report to the music room.

-Students should wear their Music Makers t-shirt and black pants/skirts with dark shoes.

The show is approximately 25 minutes long, so those students who are being honored at the Board of Education Meeting for being on the Bluffsview Archery Team will still have time to make it across town to be honored.

See you on Monday!
