First Grade Concert is a Success

First grade students perform their Christmas concert.

     On December 9, 2010, Waxhaw Elementary first grade students performed their Winter Concert facilitated by Jeremy Ryder, Music Teacher.  The first grader students sang fun songs about winter in front of a standing room only, community audience.  The students also showcased their talents by playing drums, rhythm sticks and triangles.  As they sang songs of the winter season, many of the children also demonstrated 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 of the first grade performers remarked, “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!
