It is that time of year again! We are so excited to once again be hosting the annual MWA Elementary Choral Festival at our Hutchinson Campus on April 4 - 6, 2019. The purpose for having this event is to give students in grades 5-8 a chance to be a participant in a large choral ensemble, while learning about music and the awesome beauty in glorifying our Lord through it. Our hope is that they will leave the festival excited about music and singing for God!
Make sure to register on line at https://maplewoodacademy.org/music-festival/ by March 6! If you have any questions please contact Ms. Woldemichael at 320-587-2830 or  email at hwoldemichael@maplewoodacademy.org
