Showcase of Stars - CANCELLED

Dear Parents and Guardians,


Unfortunately due to the recent concerns regarding COVID-19, the Johnston County Education Foundation has decided to cancel the Showcase of Stars Event scheduled for Saturday, March 14, 2020. We did not take this decision lightly but the safety of our students, teachers, parents and community is of utmost importance. We are saddened that we will not be able to share the amazing show that the children and choral directors have worked so hard to prepare the past few months live but we are hoping to share the performances with you via video in the coming weeks.
