AV Weekly Wildcat – February 16 2020

Alice and Wonderland: Bravo!

Congratulations to the AV cast and crew of this year’s Fifth Grade Musical, Alice in Wonderland! After months of hard work learning lines, songs, and dances you put on a spectacular show. And how about a standing ovation for all of the parent volunteers who helped behind the scenes with costumes, makeup, set, and all the rest. The show can’t go on without you.
