Spring 2020 Rehearsal Sessions
There will probably be a fee for the spring semester. The fee will be reduced if sufficient funds are raised prior to Thanksgiving (November 28th). Parents have the option to either commit to raising a certain amount of money via fundraising, or to skip the fundraising and pay an opt-out fee of $175 per student or $275 per family.
