A HUGE shout out to Ms. Brock and the 5th grade students that performed tonight. The students were “Off Their Rockers” as they sang classic songs such as Rock Around the Clock and At the Hop. The cafeteria was decked out for the occasion with pop art self portraits inspired by Andy Warhol, thanks to the hard work and creativity of Mrs. Harrelson, MES art teacher.
