4/13/2024 11:57 am

All 1st grade family and friends are invited to attend the 1st grade spring music program, “King Bidgood’s in the Bathtub.” The program will take place on Friday, April 19 at 1:30 p.m. in the Prospect School Gym. Doors will open at 1:15 p.m.

Students will be transformed into royalty this day to help tell of King Bidgood’s plight. Students will be provided a paper crown to wear during the program. They are also invited to dress in a “royal” fashion. That could mean looking nice, wearing a princess dress, a king’s cape, etc. Please make sure that your student can still move easily and is comfortable in whatever they choose to wear. No hand-held items, please (i.e. swords, scepter, etc).

We look forward to seeing you April 19!
