As we close another school year, we celebrate performances and artistic creations by so many Dedham students at every school. We have posted photos of most of the submissions presented at the District Art Show a few weeks ago. Click on each grade levels Art categories in the sidebar to view galleries of student work. Thanks to art teachers across Dedham for all their efforts in choosing, mounting, and hanging the amazing artistic achievements of their students.
We continue to go through the Spring Concert season with high and middle school students already performing for family and friends at the end of May. Riverdale also held their concert just before Memorial Day. We still have three elementary concerts to present: Oakdale School – June 7; Greenlodge School – June 13; Avery School – June 13. Of course the DHS and DMS Bands will once again perform in the annual Dedham Flag Day Parade. This year the parade will be on June 17th to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this Dedham tradition. The parade kicks off at 5pm, followed by fireworks at 9.
Congratulations to DMS and DHS music groups for their successes at regional Music Festivals in May. The <–DHS Concert Band received a Platinum Medal ranking at the Great East Music Festival held at Springfield Central HS. The DMS Jazz Band and Chorus received Superior ratings at the Trills and Thrills Festival held at Longmeadow HS. All groups continue to achieve higher rankings at these end-of-year evaluations.
