LMS Students Perform at the State Choir Festival

On April 22nd the Legg Middle School 6th and 7th grade choirs participated in MSVMA's State Choral Festival held at Holt High School. Both choirs sang beautifully and received positive comments about their singing, artistry, and mature sound. The adjudicated event was a positive and fun experience for all involved. In March, both choirs qualified at the District Choral Festival with Excellent Ratings. The 7th grade choir was only two points away for receiving the top rating of Excellent with Superior Distinction. The choirs were accompanied by Justine Hostetler, and are under the direction of Caitlin McDougall. Congratulations choirs!

The LMS Student Council hosted an all school dance on Thursday, May 12. Thanks to Mrs. Fleming, Mrs. Sobek, and all of our teacher chaperones!
