Kindergarteners on stage during concert

On Wednesday May 22, our Kindergarten students performed their grade-level musical, “How Does Your Garden Groove?” They sang a total of five songs and 16 of our students had speaking parts! For a lot of the students, this was their first time on stage and they did GREAT!

Miss Nakapaahu and Mrs. Skinner are very proud of their hard work and excited that the students had a blast!
