Memorial Day - Traditions - McDonogh School

Memorial Day

Each year in advance of the Memorial Day weekend, the entire school community, Trustees, retired employees, and alumni gather on Memorial Court to remember and honor those members of the McDonogh Family who lost their lives in service to our country. The solemn ceremony is punctuated by music performed by the Lower School Bell Choir, the Upper School String Ensemble, and the Lower School Concert Choir. After a story is told about a brave McDonogh alumnus who gave his life for our country, a wreath is placed at the monument to honor all McDonogh Veterans.
