EGLUTĖS mandatory  dress rehearsal takes place tomorrow from 12:30-2:00. Please do not take your children from school earlier. We have lots to do in a very short preparation time. Spend some time at home going over the words to songs and any spoken texts.

The actual Eglutė program takes place next Saturday at 12 pm. School begins at the usual time 9:00 am.Lunch will be served at 11:15 .

Please take time to talk to your children about the true meaning of Christmas – the celebration of the birth of Christ. In these very materialistic times, it’s important to bring spiritual values into our homes. Always rememeber – parents are the first and  most important teachers.

Greetings to our families who will be celebrating Hannukah. May we all be candles of kindness and love in the world.

Vyno Vakaronė – once again, thank you to all who participated in the planning of this special event. We not only had a great time, but managed to make a profit for the school.Thanks to contributors Nijole and Vitalis Lembertas and Tautiniai Namai. Thanks to all parents who participated in defraying the cost of the wine/beer/krupnikas.A special thanks to the Karciauskas family for providing  the technology needed for the musical program.When we work together ,we accomplish wonderful things.
