    Due to the COVID 19 shutdown of schools the annual IB senior cord ceremony paying tribute to the 2020 IB graduates was cancelled. Ms. Richburg, Ms. Newgent and our IB community wanted to do something special for our disapointed 80 seniors.  Thus, the community secretely came together to surprise our graduates wih personalized gift baskets.  The baskets were delivered on Saturday May 22 much to the delight of our seniors.  Later in the evening our IB families participated in our first virtual senior cord ceremony while enjoying the treats found within their baskets.

The quartet mixes pieces from Mexico with Latin rhythms using guitar, violin, double bass, and traditional instruments of the areas.
