With older students joining teachers in marshalling the younger kids onto the stage, handing out brochures and generally helping to support the show, Tansor Elementary School presented its annual holiday season show on Dec. 12.

This year entitled A Winter Wonderland, the 40-minute show included three sections, with hosts Paisley Kovacs and Julia Ross.

The first part featured Divisions 14, 15, and 16 in ‘Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree’, ‘All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth’, and ‘Play the Bells to Celebrate’. Next up were the kids of Divisions 12 and 13, who sang ‘Just One Candle’: a wish for peace, and a medley of ‘Up on the Housetop’ that included rap, lip-sync, rock guitar, and traditional versions.

Finally, the students of Divisions 10 and 11 sang ‘Snowflakes Falling’ and then included a comedy skit in their next number: ‘Shopping Christmas Blues’.
