Larry is a true servant to the students and families of our school. His official title is music teacher, but he uses his gifts and talents to work tirelessly to provide quality music education, plan stellar musical performances, lead parenting classes, and prepares wonderful food for special school events.

Mr. Larry is #EXTRA in the best way possible.
