Members of the DGN Band were up early this morning in support of Woodridge and Downers Grove municipal Memorial Day ceremonies. Members of the band performed in both events.
Many thanks, and congratulations to all of our Trojan musicians for exemplary community service. North High salutes all the service men and women of our nation, and specifically - today - remembers those who have given their life in support of our freedoms.

A special thank-you is extended to our Principal, Mrs. Maria Ward, for serving as guest-narrator on "Peter and the Wolf."
The combined forces of both the choir and the band brought the concert to a close as they performed Aaron Copland's "Promise of Living", and the North High Alma Mater.
Tonight's performance of the Alma Mater was dedicated to Mrs. Ward, upon the occasion of her retirement. Reflecting on Mrs. Ward's contributions to DGN, Fine Arts Department Chairperson Brayer Teague shared with the audience, "We quickly learned, as both a faculty and as a student body, that Mrs. Ward's number one concern and focus was helping students be imminently successful in every endeavor. Success in the classroom; success on the concert stage; success on the athletic field. Thinking creatively – as well as studying best practice in education and insisting that our school model these practices – has been the hallmark of Mrs. Ward's consistent and steady leadership for the past six years. She has pushed our faculty and students to achieve at the highest levels, and as a result North High School has realized unprecedented successes – at a local and national level – during her tenure."
Congratulations, Mrs. Ward, and all of the student musicians who performed so beautifully this evening.
