O Mio Babbino Caro

Has anyone done this one? I'm considering it for my MS varsity group. I know about the pitfalls: tuning, tone quality, sustained note, balance, blend, etc (pretty much everything you work on in daily chorales). I really want to know:
1) If you have done it for contest, were you successful and would you do it again?
2) Did you do the optional percussion parts or leave them out? If you played the percussion parts did you use them all the way through?
3) Am I totally nuts for considering this piece for a middle school band?
