Did you know that March is officially designated as Music in our Schools Month (MIOSM)? What exactly is  MIOSM? Well here is just a bit of history- "March has been officially designated by the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) for the observance of Music In Our Schools Month (MIOSM), the time of year when music education becomes the focus of schools across the nation. MIOSM began as a single statewide celebration in 1973 and has grown over the decades to encompass a day, then a week, and then in 1985 to become a month-long celebration of school music.
On March 1, the elementary music choir classes of the Meridian Public School District hosted a concert in the auditorium at MHS, that featured students from all six of the elementary campuses.
