Around the World at Christmas Time
The Fairview Singing Wildcats and the 3rd-5th grade classes entertained parents, teachers, students, and friends with "Around the World at Christmas Time" on Monday, December 13. The newly formed Fairview Singing Wildcats is comprised of students from 4th and 5th grade classes. These students meet weekly after school to work on music and had the privilege of singing at the Monroe Christmas Tree Lighting on December 4. The third-fifth grade students, dressed in costumes from many countries, took us around the world to learn how Christmas is celebrated in countries such as Germany, England, the Netherlands, Southern Europe, Soviet Union, Israel, and South America. Special thanks to Senora Paris for teaching Feliz Navidad to the third graders. The chorus and music classes are under the direction of Ms. Deanie Griffin.
