Our 4th, 5th, and 6th grade vocal students sang the National Anthem and a group of 6th graders performed a dance from the talent show.   It was a fantastic Friday!

HONORS CONCERT PARTICIPANTS:  Every year a number of our upper grade students audition to participate in the district wide Honor’s Concert, held at the Segerstrom Concert Hall in April.  It is truly an honor to be selected to participate in this event and students agree to attend a number of extra practices outside of the school day.  Our music team is so proud to announce the following students who were selected as this year’s Honor’s Concert participants.  Congratulations and thank you for representing Eastshore!
