The arts enjoyed a brilliant, culminating evening recently as our Tri-M, Art, Theater, and Dance Honor Societies inducted their newest members. This elegant ceremony saw our district’s most creative minds inducted into the prestigious national organizations that represent their craft. We thank the Tri-M Honor Society advisers—Mr. Yolango, Ms. Irizarry, Ms. Tinucci, and Ms. Radin—and commend our students on this wonderful accomplishment.  Congratulations, as well, to our inductees' parents, who have nurtured and supported their artist's special gifts.
