FAYETTEVILLE — Immaculate Conception School continued its annual tradition of May crowning honoring Mary. The sixth-grade students of Danielle Paige led the rosary; joining them during the procession was Corey Stone’s second-grade class. One of the sixth-graders crowned Mary and a second-grader was the crown bearer. Both classes processed separately for social distancing. Music was provided by a fifth-grade cellist and the piano was played by Muriel Bodley. The school Alma Mater Hymn was sung by the sixth-graders and conducted by music teacher Denise Velardi.
