On December 18, 2012, the Springville Jr. High school Choir came to Art City Elementary School. The Choir sang Christmas songs and their traditional song “Bum-bitti-bum.” Mrs. Walker, the choir director, said they were not going to sing it but that the students begged; they learned the song in a week and sounded terrific! The choir did a dance called “Crazy Santa” and the all time favorite “Christmas Round” “Chop-Chop, shovel-shovel”. It was very exciting to watch the Jr. High School choir sing. The students look forward to the Choir coming every year, thank you Mrs. Walker.
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.

Art City Elementary, in Springville, on Friday, November 19, 2012, third-grade students invited their dads, uncles, grandpas, and friends to come eat a donut and read a book. Miss McKell Murdock, third-grade teacher, invited her dad he too read with students. There was a good turn out of “Dad’s” for the donuts. For the students whose dad couldn’t come they shared a dad or took turns reading with another student. The dads stayed for about 20 minutes and seemed to really enjoy this time with their students. Thank you Dads for sharing your time with us.
