Second Grade Music Performance March 6 at 6 pm (Shabonee)

We are excited about our 2nd grade music performance on Wednesday, March 6, at 6:00 pm. We will hold our performance at Shabonee School to accommodate a supportive audience. Shabonee School is located at 1000 Pfingsten Road in Northbrook. We ask that you try to limit participation to the immediate family due to space restrictions. 

The doors will open at 5:45 pm for the 6:00 pm performance. Please do not arrive earlier as the building will not be open. We encourage you to carpool with friends and neighbors because parking tends to fill up. Park only in dedicated parking spots, and be cautious when entering and leaving school grounds. Parking is available in the main lot located off Pfingsten Road, the alternate lot located off Moon Hill Drive, and overflow parking is available behind the gym once the parking lots are filled. You may enter at Door A beginning at 5:45 pm. 

The gymnasium has stairs. Please get in touch with the Hickory Point school office in advance if you have special needs accessing the space. Upon arrival, all 2nd grade performers will go to a designated space to wait with their class while all other audience members get a seat in the gym. We ask that you take all of your second grader’s belongings (jackets, etc…) to your seat with you because students will be dismissed to their families from the performance space. 

We are looking forward to an amazing performance! It will be an exciting night!
