A Busy, busy month!

Spring Musical

You are invited to our Spring Musical, “Jailhouse Rock! Shake, Rattle, and Roll.”  Jailhouse Rock! is an upbeat musical in which the children travel to Camp Koinonia and are stuck inside due to storms.  The camp counselor and junior counselors teach the students about Paul, Silas, and Peter being locked up in prison and how they are miraculously released.  Students in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade will act, sing, and dance on May 10th at 10 am (dress rehearsal) and 6 pm in the gym.
