What an AWESOME concert!

Our 5th and 6th grade District Honor Choir performed on Friday evening along with the students of Magnolia Intermediate. It was a pleasure getting to see these students demonstrate their talents outside of the classroom. The music was beautiful and the support from our community was outstanding!
