  • I'm a grandparent who attended your upper middle school's production of The Nutcracker/Pizzaz back in December, 2005, to see my granddaugher in the Nutcracker/pizzaz performance. Not only was I impressed with the music program; I was also quite pleased to witness one of your staff discreetly have a member of the viewing audience who was wearing a T-shirt with vulgar and offensive print leave the room and return in proper attire.
    Thank you for providing a safe and decent atmosphere for learning.
