Our 4th and 5th grade students who are involved in our instrumental program here at school will play in a large (five school) concert on April 9th. The concert will be held at Leschi Elementary School (135 - 32nd Avenue) at 7:00 p.m.

Budget Meeting
At our last PTA meeting I spoke about something called the Weighted Student Formula - a new way of determining the budget amount for a school in Seattle. I now have our 1997/98 budget figures and they are very close to what we had this year so our school program will remain very much as is. If you would like to see these figures, I will present them at a meeting on Wednesday, March 19th. The meeting will be held in the library at 7:00 p.m.
