SUPERIOR — For the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began, students were able to perform for their families and friends in the gymnasium at Great Lakes Elementary School on Friday, May 6.

The students performed two concerts, one in the morning and another in the afternoon to keep crowd sizes down. During both concerts, an intermission allowed attendees to leave the gym if they didn’t have a student in the second half of the show.
