    Winter Concert CANCELLED

    Dear Kelly Families,

    Sadly, our schoolhouse was broken into over the weekend. The vandals discharged a fire extinguisher on our stage and covered our stage area, stage curtains and musical instruments in a fine chemical powder. Until we can be certain that the area and instruments are safe and clear we will not be able to use the stage or instruments. The health and safety of students is our number one priority. In addition, music is a valuable part of our program at Kelly and we want to make sure that the instruments are properly cleaned so that no further damage is done. We will be working to ensure that there are additional opportunities for students to perform later in this school year.

    Thank you for understanding and we are looking forward to seeing you all today!
