Dear Saklan Community,

What an amazing concert we had yesterday evening! Our annual concert at the Lesher Center is always a great event, but this year we had truly one of the best concerts ever.  A big audience of over 500 parents, relatives, friends, staff and students were awed by the music, rhythms, choreography and energy that were packed into this 90 minute concert.  I would like to highly commend our music teacher, Mrs. Grace Chaffey, for another outstanding performance. I would also like to commend Mr. Isaac Narell, whose work with the 4th and 5th graders was superlative.  A big thank you to the band, which featured Saklan’s own Mr. Sam Prestianni, Mr. Isaac Narell, Ms. Ashley Jennings, Mr. Javier Yacarini and alumnus James Rokas.  The theme of our concert was, “Bailando” and this show was the culmination of a year-long educational exploration of dance music from around the globe. Highlighted on stage was a beautiful backdrop (pictured above) to showcase the theme; thank you to Ms. Natalie Palms and the 5th, 6th, and 8th graders for creating a lovely canvas for us to admire during the show. I am certain that the theater full of parents, relatives and friends were as impressed as I was by the unique talent, energy and joy that our Saklan students can pack into one show!

Have a great weekend!

 Peter
