Teachers are handing out invitations to give to friends this week. If you do not receive one, please contact the front desk, and we will be glad to email you a copy.

Holiday Recital Recap

On the evening of December 21st, over 80 of our students performed in three recital sessions at the historic Greenfield Hill Congregational Church. What a beautiful evening of music! The audience was treated to wonderful renditions of holiday classics among other favorites. Thank you to everyone who participated and attended that evening.

From the WWDD website:

"What Would Daniel Do is inspired by the life of Daniel Barden, one of the 20 children at Sandy Hook Elementary taken from us. What started as a Facebook page has grown into a foundation. 
This family endorsed effort pays tribute to Daniel's life and honors his memory with the goal of inspiring others to share his kindness, compassion, selflessness, gratitude and appreciation of life."

This fundraiser is hosted by FSM student Amber Schaper, a friend of Daniel's, and will feature a raffle, bake sale, and live music.
