Tonganoxie Elementary School has a state championship in Music Memory. TES sent two teams to the Music Memory contest April 22 at Kansas State University. The “Tonganoxie South” team led by TES teacher Amy Jones won the state contest this year. The squad won the contest against 17 other teams, including the “Tonganoxie North” team led by fellow TES teacher Wanda Haney. Haney had a team that also won the contest in 2012.
