10/15 – STUDENTS TAKE A PILGRIMAGE TO THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME
Students and staff took a trip to Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to tour the facility and to prepare for the upcoming performance season. The 4 1/2 hour trip was facilitated by the UMC Van, and parent volunteers. The students had a great time and learned a lot about the history of rock as they toured the exhibits filled with the instruments, clothing and other items belonging to the greatest icons of rock.
