UES host Christmas Concerts

BUCKHANNON — Union Elementary School hosted a Christmas concert during school hours Monday and Tuesday to boost the Christmas spirit in anticipation for the holiday weekend. The choir students from each grade level picked a selection of music to entertain the school, faculty, staff and guests in attendance.

Kindergarten through second grade students performed Monday, while fourth and fifth graders performed Tuesday, singing one to two songs they practiced in anticipation for the performances. The students were extra excited, as they lined the stage and caught eyes with their family and friends in the audience. Each of the performances were also streamed online to give loved ones from all around the opportunity to watch the Christmas joy expressed by the students.

The children practiced for a few weeks to get ready and worked really hard to put on such a wonderful experience. The students in the older classes are given the option to be in the school’s choir. Those who choose to participate in the choir give up their recess time.

Despite COVID-19, the turnout was much better than Principal Carol Clay expected.

“We had such a great time practicing and performing. This is our big holiday concert and I am so pleased with how it turned out,” exclaimed Clay.

On Wednesday, Santa himself was so proud of the students that he had to make an appearance. Mr. Claus brought presents for all the students and even took some photos with them before having to rush back to his workshop in anticipation for the big day.

On behalf of the students and staff at Union Elementary School, “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!”
