  • Recommended December 21, 2011 - Absolutely Awesome Musical Choral Tuesday evening! Kudos to the wonderful music director and all those who participated. It is evident that a great deal of work and practice went into making this such an exceptional musical evening! The caliber and quality of this evening was exemplary. These young people put forth such effort and are a real credit to the school and reflect the discipline and exceptional direction of their music teacher. VERY WELL DONE! - Posted by Parent
