Second graders to honor American heroes

Bain Elementary School will hold its annual patriotic  performance May 25 at 9 am in the school’s parking lot.  Second graders, directed by music teacher Noreen Hofmann and dressed in red, white and blue, will sing eight songs to express gratitude toward the United States and those who serve it.
The patriotic program ties in to the second grade reading curriculum, which focuses on America.  Every grade has a musical performance each year, but according to Hoffman the second grade show is especially moving.
