Congratulations to the Memorial School 4th and 5th Grade Band and Chorus on the wonderful spring concert they performed on Wednesday morning for the school, and Wednesday evening for family and friends.  Entitled “America the Beautiful”. Thank you to Mrs. Niu, Mrs. Rzasa, and Mr. Napierkowski for their commitment to music and to the children, and a special thank you to Mrs. Parry who accompanied the chorus on piano, and Joe Plummer who played percussion. What a celebration of our wonderful school family!
