JK-3 Christmas Concert

December saw three seperate Christmas-themed concerts at our school. Our Primary division put on an absolutely adorable Christmas concert this year. Stafff, family members and guests were treated to wonderfully prepared performances and judging by the smiles, applause and comments from the audience, it was a great treat for all.

Mme. Penney/Ms. Benson's ELKP class!
Mrs. Desormeau/Ms. Girard's ELKP class and Mrs. Meaden's Gr. 1's teamed up for a collaboration.
Some of Mrs. Desormeau/Ms. Girard's ELKP students sang sweetly!
Mme. Penney and Mrs. Benson's ELKP class!
Mme. Demers and Mme. Charron's ELKP class!
Mrs. Foley's Gr. 2 class sang and played a song on the boomwhackers!

Mme. Cheff, Mme. Charlebois and Mme. Sylvestre's classes sang three songs.
Mrs. Laroque's Gr. 3 Music/Dance class performed wonderfully!

Though everyone had wonderful performances, this ELKP class certainly stole the show! Accompanied by Mr. Martin, this group of future rock stars sure know how to move!
