The month of March is celebrated nationwide as “Music In Our Schools Month (MIOSM).”  It is a time to recognize the importance of music in our schools and the impact that a quality music program can have on our students’ lives.  The 2014 theme was “Music Makes Me _____!”  Students at Hopatcong Middle School participated in this celebration through a variety of activities including creating Public Service Announcement Podcasts, theme posters, and a showcase, to name a few.  The theme posters were based on “Music Makes Me _____!”.   The winners of the poster contest included:  1st Place – Breanna Maurer, who won a guitar; 2nd Place – Samantha Schuman, who won a $25 gift card to The Music Den; 3rd Place – Summer Christie, who won headphones; and 4th Place – Simon Mendoza, who won an iTunes gift card.  Prizes were donated by the Ledgewood Walmart, The Music Den, and anonymous donors.
