On May 11th, 2024, students from Franklin, Roosevelt, Grant, and South Plainfield Middle School participated in the CJMEA Honors Chorus Festival. The choral students of our district shined and had a wonderful experience rehearsing and performing under two very esteemed conductors. It was a day full of growth for all involved and we are excited to have them bring back their knowledge to our choral ensembles in the district. Thank you to Ms. Vex, Ms. Blair, Ms. Maddolin, and Mrs. Haughwout for your time with the students involved in this program.
