Lac la Hache Elementary School was proud to present its version of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.
The intermediate students opened the evening with a clarinet performance of Jingle Bells and a Christmas medley.
Following the band was the highlight of the evening where every student from kindergarten to Grade 7 was involved in singing songs to support Abbi Anderson’s narration of the classic poem by Clement Moore.
The students favourite song was Reindeer on the Roof, a rocking tune that had them dancing and smiling.
The audience was made up of families of the performers, as well as many community members. The Parent Advisory Council (PAC) held a basket raffle, staff and parents brought goodies to share after the show, and Santa, Gradie Fry, handed out stockings and candy canes to the students and other small children.
Principal Cindy Neufeld noted Lac la Hache Elementary would like to thank Jasmine Kreschuk for her talented piano playing and instruction, and Lianne Heales for her painting of our beautiful backdrop.
“The students of Lac la Hache Elementary are a talented, hard-working group of students who enjoyed putting on a show for all to enjoy.”
The progressive bingo jackpot totalling $2,550 was won by Lac la Hache resident Richmond Lozeau, one of the 105 people who attended the turkey bingo on Dec. 17.
Bingo will resume on Jan. 7. Anyone wishing any information or would like to volunteer in the new year should contact Barb Hanson at 250-396-7568.
