Dear SBS Families,
I realize that I often communicate a great deal of information in my Weekly Updates and details can be overlooked. Therefore, I am sending a separate email with this important notice.
May 24th is a student holiday. We have received special permission to be excused from making that day up as a Hurricane Day due to our Middle States project. Our teachers will be using that day to work on Middle States.
God bless you,

Spring Concert- As you may know students in the third, fourth, and fifth grade have been practicing hard for their spring show, which will take place on Wednesday, May 15th in O’Brien Hall at 7pm. The theme of this years show is the music of the 1950s. In order for us to look our best, I ask that your child dress in something that reflects the time period, however, please do not feel obligated to buy anything. Boys and girls may also wear jeans with a solid colored t-shirt and sneakers. I ask that your children be in O’Brien Hall and ready to go by 6:45to give of plenty of time to get lined up and ready to rock you into summer! Thank you so much for your cooperation. Ms. Zimmerman
