Beware of the Dragon

Posted by James Mernin.

Parents will be selling tickets at the concerts instead of an admission charge. We are asking for spot prizes so if you would like to donate please drop them in to the school office. Also, if you could volunteer to sell tickets at one of the concerts the parents association would be most grateful.

There will also be an appearance by the infamous Fenor Dragon at the concerts. He was captured by 6th class one morning as he flew overhead and is being held in a humane and safe facility at the bottom of their class.
