we are grandparents of Dylan Schlorf. We attended the Fall Concert tonight in the gymnasium and our grandson is in the School Choir. We want to thank Ms. Grecco for the great choice of music which was performed by the students. It is a pleasure to hear patriotic songs and the Americana Jubilee was so entertaining and sung so well by the students. Madeline and Jolly Brown
