Winter Concert and Food Drive: Thanks to our talented students for a great Winter Concert. Our first concert in a few years was a resounding success with many, many parents braving the terrible weather. Thanks also to Mr. Schneider and his team of Martin Street staff members and senior students that helped to make this happen! Donations for our Food Drive can still be dropped off in front of the school office until Tuesday December 20th.
