Annual Whole School Sing-Along

Our annual whole school sing-along was held before break. During the month of December, students prepare music related to different customs and seasonal happenings. This unit of study gives students the opportunity to develop their singing voices, understand cultural connections, and experience the joy of music-making. We sang 11 songs, including:  "December In Our Town" (Roger Emerson), "Deck The Halls", "Winter Wonderland", "Do You Hear What I Hear?", "Joyous Chanukkah", "O Kwanzaa", "Up On The Housetop", "Jingle Bells", "Frosty, The Snowman", "Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer", and "We Wish You A Merry Christmas".  A tradition is for faculty and staff to get up and sing "Jingle Bell Rock" to the students.
