Waxhaw goes folk!

Waxhaw first graders perform for their parents and friends.

On December 12, 2013, the first graders at Waxhaw Elementary School put on a concert for the community.  The concert featured both new and old folk songs such as "Miss Mary Mac," "Skip To My Lou," "Jingle Bells," and even Phillip Phillips' popular release "Home."
“I thought the kids did great. I was very proud of their performance,” said Mr. Ryder, the music teacher.  Dylan in Mrs. Kohn’s class remarked, “My favorite part was when we sang the Holiday songs, because it was almost Christmas time.”
What’s next for the Waxhaw music department?  “We are looking forward to performing a musical called 101 Dalmations in the spring.  It’s going to be great!” said Mr.Ryder.
