As the weather is changing outside it is a reminder that the Holiday’s are on their way! It has been a fantastic start to the year. We are so fortunate to have such great teachers, kids and families here at Elysian. We are finishing up strong here for 2011 and are excited about our Christmas Concert on December 20th at 7pm. It is going to be a great night of music from our talented Elysian Students. I want to wish everyone a happy holiday season and say thank you for all you do for Elysian School!
December 23rd through January 2nd
December 22nd we dismiss at 12:30 pm. The bus will run the normal routes. Please let anyone who transports your children know about the early dismissal.
I am eagerly looking forward to a night filled with music making during the Elysian School Holiday Concert on Tuesday, December 20, at 7:00 pm. With the concert quickly approaching, I want to remind you and your student(s) of a few expected concert procedures.
