Thank you for all your support as parents and family as we worked hard to put on our Annual Christmas Production, and a HUGE thank you to Jason, our speech therapist for the countless hours that he put into helping everything run smoothly. We also want to thank the SHS Student Council for all the lunches they spent with the students rehearsing lines and blocking! It was a huge success Monday night!
Here's a peek into some of the rehearsals.
The students at Oakridge were able to go to the Bean Museum at BYU today. There were lots of animals to see, but the live animal show was the favorite of the students! There were lots of laughs as the presentor brought around the live turtle, tarantula, and corn snake for the students to feel and see.
