TRENTON, NJ – Some 65 members of Constable’s student choirs in grades 3-5 performed the National Anthem and took part in the Constable School Family Night at Trenton Thunder baseball game Saturday night.

School Principal Peter Rattien said Vocal Specialist and School Choir Director Francios Suhr led the program that gave the students in grades 3-5 the opportunity to perform at the game.

“They rehearsed as a group prior to the event with Mr. Suhr,” Rattien said in an email Sunday. “After signing the national anthem, students met up with their families and watched the game.  Constable basically had two large sections of the stands, where we all sat together.”
