Elementary band concert May 22 at Harry S Truman Elementary School

This spring seems to have flown by, maybe because Mother Nature wasn’t sure what she was doing.

We have officially passed the mid-marking period of the fourth quarter and if your students are like mine, the official countdown to the last day of school has begun.

Harry S Truman Elementary School will host the annual spring concert 9:30 a.m. May 17. The third grade students will perform with their recorders they have worked so hard to learn and the fourth and fifth grade chorus will perform. Hope you can make this performance.
