  1. I’m very concerned about the constant line of cars, picking up their children, in the no parking area across from the buses! This needs to be addressed.


    • Hi Ken, since Valentine’s Day is on a Friday this year, we decided to have a dance the following week to avoid the schedule conflict. We’re glad you like the dance, and we hope you will bring your little one to our Snow Ball on Feb. 21!
