  • Expressions Musical Theater Summer Camp: Registration for camp will begin in April. Look for flyer with all the details. Camp weeks run June 12 through June 30. Campers can come for single weeks or all 3 weeks!
  • Please note: It is our school policy to only promote Expressions summer camps or extra-curricular activities since we have no way of knowing the safety factors and staff background of other camps or clubs. We do allow others to post flyers, but just know that we have no way of vetting these offerings. We invite anyone to post flyers, but please don’t use our email lists to send information.
  • PLEASE COMPLETE YOUR REQUIRED VOLUNTEER HOURS. We count on parents to help make our school the best it can be AND your child will be so proud of you! Parent Yard Work Day Coming Soon! Look for PTO announcements.
