To say our students have been a little excited to meet kid-lit-tunes musician Emily Arrow is an understatement! We’ve been reading books, singing her songs, and watching her YouTube videos for months, and the day finally came for her to sing with us LIVE and IN PERSON from the Elsa England Cafeteria!!!!!!
Thanks again to our fabulous PTA for sponsoring this amazing experience for our community!
