Piney Post - Week 22 - January 30, 2023
Mon, Jan 30 12:06pm



The PTO is excited to announce that we are sponsoring a Kuchipudi Dance Demonstration that will take place tomorrow, January 31st, during the Town Meeting! We are delighted to have the Layavinyasa Organization, that promotes Kuchipudi dance and Carnatic classical music originating from south India, joining us for a school wide assembly.  The dance demonstration will be an informative and entertaining experience about Indian culture.  We are thrilled to bring this performance to PGS, and are hopeful that it will be used as an example to incorporate and enhance this month’s school pillar of Respect, and the importance of how one can be respectful of others cultures and traditions. 

The PTO was able to bring this cultural performance to PGS thanks to the funds that were raised during Boosterthon last year. 

As a reminder this is an opportunity for your child to have a special night with one of their favorite grown-ups. There will be dancing, crafts, food and a photo booth for taking pictures! It is sure to be a fun night! Buy your tickets today!
