Adelia Chambers, our music teacher, and Deanna Roth, who came to help her, were in charge of our terrific chorus group. Several schools came to perform and the audience literally was so close to the bandstand, that I had to get down on my knees to shoot. The kids did great and seemed right at home with their performance.
Then there was the PJ party which Mrs. Maise, our superb librarian, works hard at every year! This year kids came in droves with lots of activities and to end with hot chocolate and cookies.
Where else are you going to see several singers, one acapella, a crackerjack yo yo expert, a hula hoop performer, one jiu jitsu master, dancing acts, two doubles, and a wonderful magician—all for free!
Each year we move along to Christmas and Apopka comes alive in its own right. We did our design the hall thing again this year, although, there was so much going on with the end of the marking period grading. Some of it was fun. And Admin and Cheer had a luncheon, while I followed the judges through the halls.
For a three week period, a lot goes on, including Christmas parties and final quarter grades. Mrs. McCoy from our cafeteria and many of the staff coordinated with students, a food drive on the Saturday morning school ended.
