On December 8, 2011, Wingate Elementary School celebrated December holidays and gift-giving traditions around the world with a program at Wingate University in Austin Auditorium.
Students shared the traditions of each holiday with a brief explanation and song to celebrate our global traditions. The Wingate Elementary Chorus, The WESingers, led by music teacher, Paula Yurkovich, began the program, followed by performances by each grade level. Songs included the traditions of St. Nicholas Day, Hanukkah, St. Luciaâ€™s Day, Las Posadas, Boxing Day, Kwanzaa, and Christmas.
Wingate Elementary would like to thank Wingate University for their generosity and the use of the Austin Auditorium, as well as the parents and family members that came and supported their children.
