East School Singers Holiday Sing!

Congratulations to our fourth grade East School Singers who performed earlier this month at the New Canaan Holiday Stroll. They will send us off for the winter vacation week with the gift of music during the morning arrival period on Thursday, December 23rd. Here’s a special message from Mr. Zhou:

Tired of the same old morning routine? The East School Singers will kick off the holiday season with some holiday favorites at morning drop-off on Thursday, December 23rd at 8:45am. 

Our East Singers will greet staff and students with their holiday songs. We appreciate their commitment to their rehearsals and music throughout the fall and appreciate them sharing this with us!
