What an amazing evening we had for our Hoedown!  Thank you so much to Mr. Carpenter, Daisy Nell, Captain Stan on guitar and banjo, Jack Schwartz on the double bass, Jay Keefe on fiddle, and Pat Conlon on mandolin.
It takes many hands to pull off an event this size.  A very big thank you to all the parents who organized, came early, worked throughout, and stayed late to make this evening happen!
To see the photos taken that evening click on "Photo Gallery" in the menu on the left of this page.  A HUGE thank you goes out to our very own Kendra Dott of  Sharon's Studio for the beautiful Photo Booth photographs.

So good to see you all at Welcome Back Night!  We had beautiful weather and a perfect evening to kick off our new school year in style.  Thank you to all of our tables: Apple Street Farm; Boy & Girl Scouts; Essex Farmers Market; Essex Shipbuilders Athletic Association; Gloucester Uechi Karate Academy; Learn to Skate; Music Asylum; and Seven Acres Farm. A special thank you goes out to our favorite DJ, David Alger, for making the party ROCK!  And to all our amazing volunteers, we could not do this without you. 

Here's to a great 2014-2015 school year!
