Adam Chongris is retiring after more than three decades of instilling a love of music in Solon students. How many times have we heard Mr. Chongris gush about the great honor and joy he feels in teaching middle-schoolers? How many times have we been treated to obscure facts and timely juxtapositions during his one-of-a-kind marching band announcements? Who didn't enjoy his "Uncle Adam" storytelling during last fall's Pigskin Review? Here's your chance to demonstrate your appreciation for all that Mr. Chongris has given to Solon Schools over the years. Solon Music Parents is contributing $500 of organization funds toward a travel voucher for Mr. Chongris to visit family or see the world in his retirement. We will present the gift during the final band concert on Wednesday, April 30. If you would like to contribute personally toward the gift, click on the PayPal button below. We will be accepting individual contributions through Tuesday, April 29. Thank you for your show of appreciation -- and, remember, don't breathe a word to Mr. Chongris.
