Choir and Drama tour during Spring Break

On Sunday, March 6th, the choir under the direction of Mr. Waldemar Wensell, and several adult sponsors are traveling to Rome, Italy to perform, and sight see.  The choir members and parents raised funds all year long by organizing bake sales, serving school lunch and working with local businesses like Panera Bread and Baskin and Robbins Ice Cream to donate a portion of the cash receipts to this trip.  The choir will perform four times during the week at Seventh-day Adventist Churches in the area.  When the choir is not singing, they will tour with Mr. Kevin Ramkissoon, our history teacher, as they explore the Colosseum and Roman Forum, the Vatican Museums (Sistine Chapel), Trevi Fountains and other sites.
