Art City Elementary school, on December 14, 16, and 20, 2010, the Kindergarten through sixth Grade Sung around the Christmas Tree in the gym. 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”, 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.
