On Thursday, December 11, 2014, the Morningside Elementary Chorus under the direction of Donna Calvert presented a upbeat singing and speaking presentation for parents and guests to celebrate traditions around the world. The students dressed in traditional costumes from their country or state and told about the traditions that are part of that country’s holiday time. Student’s also played bells, tambourines and other percussion instruments throughout the program.
The Floresta Elementary choral performance held recently was a glorious night of engaged students, parents, families and staff enjoying the annual “Winter Concert!” The event was kicked off by the 4th and 5th grade students singing a stirring rendition of “A Hard Knock Life” from Annie. The students, led by Music Director Ms. Kraus, then performed a variety of mixed arrangements, traditional Holiday carols and ended with a beautiful rendition of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” sang by all faculty and students.
