Musical Spotlight Features Patriotic Theme

Meramec Elementary second- and third-graders performed music inspired by the United States of America during their Spotlight performance on Thursday, Nov. 10. To prepare for the performance, students learned folk songs and dances that featured each class playing the accompaniment on the xylophones. The students also sang a song in honor of Veterans Day titled, “Proud of Our Veterans.” When it was time to sing “God Bless America,” the Meramec students invited their parents to stand and sing along with them. The evening ended with creative movement to “Stars and Stripes Forever,” with students waving flags to the music.
