ASD Choral Jubilee TONIGHT!

If you are riding the bus with us to West High School, meet at the front entrance of Bartlett at 5:00 pm.  Please come dressed and ready to sing!  Please do NOT bring anything with you (including phones) on the bus - medically necessary items are the only exception.

We will be back to Bartlett by about 8:00 pm.  Please make sure that parents are here by 8:00 pm.

The Choral Jubilee concert begins at 7:00 pm at West High School.  If you have friends or family attending, please make sure they know to get there early enough to find parking and seats.  (There are ten elementary schools participating, so it should be a pretty full audience.)
