Mother Teresa school students presented their annual Christmas concert to large group of family and friends on Tuesday evening. The concert began with “Twas the night before Christmas”, acted by Grade 1 to 3 students. Then the grades 1 through 4 performed Christmas Carols with bells. Grades 4, 5 and 6 sang and danced to three musical selections: Santa’s coal, snowman stomp and the little drummer boy. A play “Cowboy hands Christmas carol” was presented by the jr. high class. In between each act, Mrs. Norman’s piano students played Christmas carols. The entire student body gathered to conclude the evening with the Nativity. Our sincere appreciations to the teachers and their helpers.
Santa arrived with candy bags and oranges for all the students, compliments of the Halkirk Elks. A lunch was prepared by the parents, draws were made and a successful achievement went down in the history books. Students will spend their final day with activities at the Circle Square ranch.
The seniors held their Christmas supper on Tuesday evening at the center with 20 plus members present to enjoy turkey and the trimmings.
