Happy Friday Tiger Sharks,

Congratulations to Mrs. Walker and all her students on a wonderful performance last evening. All the groups were outstanding and showed such growth from the fall. We had a little Star Wars, Mandalorian, and Moana.

An additional thank you to all the staff and families who came out to support. If you missed it we have more student talent on stage this weekend and more performances in the coming weeks. 

Join us tonight May 5th  for the opening of Really Rosie!  The Tiger Shark Theatre Company opens the spring musical at WLMS! Come out to REALLY ROSIE and bring the kids! Performances are Friday, May 5th at 7pm and Saturday, May 6th at 1pm and 7pm. Scan the QR code on the poster to buy a ticket in advance.
