  4. Monday, December 12th - We would like to invite you to our BASCS Elementary Spring Concert at the BASCS Middle School Campus. We are always so excited to see the overwhelming number of parents and families who attend the winter and spring concerts, and the opportunity to enjoy watching your children display their talent on stage. Therefore, to ensure everyone’s safety and the ability to enjoy the show, we will be holding two separate concerts. The performances for grades K-1 and grades 2-3 will run as follows:
    Grades K-1 Concert will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. The K-1 students must arrive at the Middle School at 5:30 p.m. and will meet their teachers in the gym. The main entrance doors will open for the K-1 parents and students at 5:30. Grades 2-3 Concert will begin at 7:00 p.m. (Grades 2-3 students must arrive at the Middle School at 6:30 and MUST enter through the blue doors). Students ONLY will be permitted to enter through these doors and will be sent to their assigned classrooms. Parents will proceed to the front entrance of the school. The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for second and third grade parents.
    Parents will receive color coded tickets, which will go home with their child ahead of time, to determine when you will gain access to the gym. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. for K-1 parents and at 6:30 p.m. for grades 2-3 parents. Parents who have children in both performances will be permitted to enter at 5:30 p.m. We are looking forward to seeing you all there!
