 “High Notes Festival 2014”

The PQ Chorus consists of 49 students with both fourth and fifth grade participation. The Chorus practices after school, two days a week, on a weekly basis from January to May.
The “Fine Arts Night” took place on May 20th, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. The Students performed songs from the show “Everyday Heroes”. The theme celebrated heroes from all walks of life including; Sports Heroes, Community Heroes, Emigrants and Everyday Heroes, who perform random acts of kindness on a daily basis.
The PQ Chorus also performed at the “High Notes Festival” on May 30th, 2014, at Lake Compounce. They sang selections from their show “Everyday Heroes” and received a score of “Excellent” for their performance. The PQ Chorus has participated in this festival for the past 5 years and has consistently received ratings of Excellent to Superior
for their performances each and every time. Kudos to PQ Chorus!



Robert McCloskey Mural Dedication Ceremony: Robert McCloskey, famous author and illustrator of Caldecott Award books including Make Way for Ducklings, lived in North Salem over 50 years ago. He created the mural for his dentist in Croton Falls. The mural has hung at PQ since the school was built in 1972. The PTO has funded a special frame to preserve for the art for the future. The mural will hang in the hallway opposite the multi-purpose room with a plaque telling more about Robert McCloskey and his books.
