    Lower School Sees Spots with 101 Dalmations KIDS

    The Lower School Music students, under the direction of Todd Monsell, performs Disney's 101 Dalmations KIDS last week.

Many of the students were dressed as dogs with a pack of Boxers in boxing gloves, Poodles in pink spots, Scotties in plaid, Chihuahuas in Mexican ponchos, and Dalmations in black and white. The students did a wonderful job with the performance. Congratulations to the cast and crew. Click here to see the Playbill from the production.
