The Triple C School community got into the Christmas spirit Thursday for the annual preschool through Grade 1 concert.
The performance of “The Luke 2 Christmas Story” was based on scriptures from Isaiah 9:6 and Luke 2.
The holiday theme was celebrated through songs such as “Jingle Bells,” “Come On, Ring Those Bells,” “Wonderful Counselor,” “Away in the Manger,” “The Virgin Mary had a Baby Boy,” “Angels We Have Heard on High,” “Go Tell it on the Mountain” and for the grand finale, “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”
“The message of God’s greatest gift from a child’s perspective is a heart-lifting experience,” said Elementary Vice Principal Jennifer Allen.
The evening opened with teacher Antoinette Cowan’s Early Childhood Dancers performing to “Every Praise,” followed by singing from the preschool and pre-kindergarten classes.
“Students learn to become great orators by practicing public speaking, memorization skills are honed, musical talents are revealed through songs, the message of God’s greatest gift, the birth of the Savior of the World is revealed to parents and students,” said Principal Mable Richardson.
The concert was organized by Mr. Jorge, music and band director, and Ms. Schmoyer, the music teacher.
Triple C School students perform twice a year, at Christmas and Easter, as a part of the curriculum.
“It showcases the visual arts via scriptural and poetic memorization, singing, sacred dancing, and the playing of musical instruments,” said Ms. Richardson.
Students in Grades 6-12 performed Dec. 1, lead by Mr. Jorge.
On Dec. 15, Grades 2-5 will perform “A Shepherd’s Story” with a mix of traditional and modern Christmas music starting at 6 p.m.
