Tremendous performance this weekend!  Not only did our students perform well in the parade, but they continued to be first class ambassadors for our school and community while eating lunch at the CNN center!  This weekend was full of memorable moments and I am so thankful that we were able to share them together.

We have another opportunity this weekend to spread Christmas cheer to our community through the performance in the Carrollton Holiday Wishes Parade.
