Congratulations on your 2nd place finish!! 2016 

CONGRATULATIONS are in order for the awesome performance put on by our very own Trentones Show Choir.  At the Maine State Show Choir Festival, our students put on an exceptional performance.  And for their efforts they earned a #1

rating and 2nd place overall! Also, our very own Julianna Serrato received a musicianship award for her solo. Not only did the ensemble place well at states, they were also the talk of the MDIRSS community for their performance at the District Show Choir performances the night before at MDI High School. 

Thanks to Vivian Hyde for accompanying the ensemble on piano and Carl Ferm for providing the percussion. Also, all those parents who helped the group on their journey.  These experiences are the things that students remember and form the building blocks that keep them engaged in school and foster perseverance.
