I thoroughly enjoyed the NDHS presentation of White Christmas. The students did such a great job. They have bright futures ahead of them!
I found this video online of our Christmas Program by the First Grade. The Fourth Grade performed on the same night, but I haven’t found a video of theirs. I did have my video running but I’m not sure how it turned out yet as no one was manning it. The first graders are sooooo cute! Enjoyed their little songs, a lot from Plank Road Publishing, a wonderful music company.
One of the very few programs that I have repeated in all of my 32-plus years of teaching is The Nutcracker. It is so much fun! I can still remember doing it at the old buildings–Odon, Plainville, and Elnora. The melodies are timeless, and this little musical is so lovely. I know it really is a ballet, but the music is so familiar now due to its use in holiday movies and commercials. It doesn’t feel out of place to sing it. I know the students love it. Every year I’m asked if we are doing The Nutcracker! Sorry, kiddos. We really should wait a few years in between. Here are some pictures from this year’s edition. I didn’t take these pictures–thanks Angie! I’m always appreciative of music program pictures, so if you have any, please, email me some!
