Trinity Lutheran End of the Year Program – Salute to Mr. Coniglio

    The 33rd Trinity Lutheran School End of the Year program had a special meaning this time with the retirement of beloved middle school teacher Steve Coniglio. For 27 years, Mr. C, as the kids call him was a mainstay of the upper grades at the Classical Lutheran School on Park Avenue in Riverton.

    The program was under the direction of former head teacher, kindergarten teacher, and music teacher Susan Tucker. Mrs. Tucker wrote the program, taught the students their parts, and accompanied the many songs the children, from three-year-old preschool students to the graduating eighth graders sang.
