As the school year comes to a close, I would like to thank our students and staff who have worked extremely hard to accomplish their goals for the school year. I would also like to take the time to thank our PTA for all of their help throughout the year. Their assistance with our programs and fundraisers has been outstanding and I look forward to our partnership again next year.
I am happy to announce that last week, the Jazz Band and Vocal Ensemble attended the “Music in the Parks”competition at Six Flags Great Adventure and had an Outstanding Day! The Jazz Band came in first place with a rating of “Superior.” Jazz Band member Alex Kinder, 7th grade, received an outstanding soloist award. Our Vocal Ensemble also came in first place with a rating of “Excellent.” Vocal Ensemble Member Thomas Krey, 8thgrade, received an outstanding soloist award. Congratulations to Mr.Constantine, Mrs. Bense, Mr. Wald and all of the Jazz Band and Vocal Ensemble members. Great Job!
