On Tuesday, March 4, the St. Croix Middle School gymnasiums echoed with music and characters from Medieval Times.

The sixth grade band and choirs performed songs they had learned over the last few weeks that were popular during Medieval times, or were inspired by those years.

After the concerts, parents, friends and family were invited into the large gymnasium to tour a "Wax Museum" featuring characters from the Medieval era.
