Harelson Orchestra
Students are to go to the Library right after dismissal, and they are to come to Room 502 at 2:25pm, and wait outside the room until Mr. Tagawa invite them in.
Parents: Please pick up your child from Cross at 3:20pm. Park your car across the Cross MS, students are to cross the road with the crossing guard (I suggest you to come by 3:15pm). Plese do not cross the road without the crossing guard for safety. There will be a long line of cars for Cross MS pick up, and Cross MS ends at 3:25pm. (It will take you a long time to pick up your child this way). Students who are enrolled in the after care will walk back to Harelson after Orchestra class.
Thank you, Toru Tagawa
