Mountain City Elementary school students celebrated the season by presenting three Christmas programs to full audiences on Friday, December 20. Dressed in festive attire and costumes, kindergarten and first grade students performed The Night before Christmas, second and third grade students performed Christmas Colors, and The Heart of Christmas was performed by fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students. All performances were under the direction of the music teacher, Mrs. Kim Franklin.

A special thanks to Moriah Franklin and Brian Franklin for assisting with the sound system.  A reception for students, families, visitors, and staff was held in the cafeteria after each performance.
