Recital This Weekend!

This weekend is the recital at MTMS! We’re so excited to see everyone – and it is important to know that weather will not cancel this event. Prepare to be outside for good weather and to hear more details if the forecast changes. It’s going to be hot.

For our excited version – we’re going to have this recital outdoors. There will be games and activities. Be prepared for the heat- it might be above 90 degrees. Beach volleyball and beach bingo will be on the list of activities. Be ready to play dolphin ring toss and horseshoes. There will be prizes and a craft, too.

If you haven’t heard from MTMS by tomorrow, please contact us about your recital time. Practice and be ready for all the fun.
