Kindergarten's First Performance

The kindergarten classes of Martinez and Sanchez had their debut performance at the opening night of the Performing Arts Center!  They were so excited to perform on a REAL stage with lights and a curtain and in front of their parents that they could hardly stand still.  The shock and excitement got to them once they got on stage, but their performance was still outstanding!  The video above is 2 rehearsals prior to the performance as we practiced like we were on a stage in the classroom.  Kinders you are amazing!
