Waxhaw's Winter Concert
On December 9, 2010, Waxhaw Elementary first grade students performed their Winter Concert facilitated by Jeremy Ryder, Music Teacher. The first graders sang fun songs about winter in front of a standing room only community audience. The students also showed off demonstrated their talent by playing drums, rhythm sticks and triangles. As they sang songs of the winter season, many of the children also showcased their dancing skills.
"Back in October when I was planning this concert it seemed silly to be singing songs about snow in December. It looks like we picked the right year," commented Jeremy Ryder.
One first grader said, "My favorite song was "Mama Bake the Johnny Cake."
It was a wonderful night filled with fun music and joyful singing. Great job first grade!
