Last week was our Spring '22 Choir Concert. For one of the pieces, a soloist lost their voice and couldn't sing. Right before the song begins, Matilda says "Joey knows it! And I'll sing it with him" And they did🙂 That is what "The West Way" is all about.

Here's "This Is Me" performed by the WMS choir featuring Rhea M., Matilda B., and Joey N.

Wonderful job students and Mrs. Sturdy! Portage Public Schools
