Sometimes there's too much going on in town to capture all the stuff that we want to here at Patch. That's the only reason this little video has sat for a couple weeks.

In it, you'll see the combined elementary school choruses delivering their take on The Beatles' "Octopus's Garden" (Track Five, Side A of Abbey Road, enthusiasts will tell you), led by elementary school music teacher John Baccaro, whom a number of you told us was your favorite teacher.

The second-year event demonstrated the talents of youngsters in the district in an impressive display of artwork that adorned the halls of the Collingswood Middle and High Schools.

If you missed out on some of the artwork on display at the event, it's worth going back for.
