Art City Elementary school, in December gathered in the foyer to sing around the tree. It is a tradition that started 20 plus years ago, to sing various Christmas songs. Some of the favorites are “Rock around the Christmas Tree”, “Santa Claus is Coming to town”, "Christmas Bills" and at the end we always sing the first verse of “Silent Night” then as we are leaving we continue to hum as we leave. It helps put us in the Holiday Spirit.
