school itself and our policies. Later that night in the cafeteria a small group was playing violin, and once you entered, the theatre program was performing one of the songs from the Seussical, accompanied by the dance department. This made it so the kids could see each department in action. When you were done getting the information you needed from the cafeteria, they were then guided to the gym.

There was also a live orchestra playing and later our chorus performed a song accompanied by a clarinet player from the band. Overall Expo night was a success, and we hope the incoming sixth graders are excited about the year ahead.
