"Elfis and the Sleigh Riders"
What's cuter than a bunch of 1st and 2nd graders putting on a Christmas play? Not much!!!!
Here are most of the 1st Graders (the second graders are on the other side of the stage and since I don't have a 2nd grader, I didn't bother to take their picture).
This was probably the cutest Elementary "concert"/program I have ever seen. The music teacher here is amazing and prepared the kids thoroughly. I was so impressed at how well those little 1st graders performed. The elves, and other characters not shown here, had multiple speaking parts and they did an amazing job. They looked and sounded like little actors (it kinda reminded me of the 90's Little Rascals movie). The 1st graders also learned 6 songs...most of which had choreography.
Nathan actually SANG and did some of the choreography! Usually in any school program he has been a part of in the past, he has just stood with his hands over his ears......and didn't participate. He did get distracted sometimes and just wanted to watch what was happening on stage (instead of looking at the music teacher) but he is making progress and it's really exciting!!!! (o: (By the way, Nathan is on the front row, in the grey sweatshirt.)
And guess what? At the end of the program, the Principal actually said, "Merry Christmas"!!!!!! Imagine that! ha ha. I think I like it here.
