The choir performed six Holiday themed songs, including the Spanish-language “Dale Dale Dale” and the popular “Carol of the Bells.” Volunteer Sue Baker accompanied the choir on the piano, as she does at the regular weekly practices.

About 100 children in the fourth grade followed the Roosevelt Choir with their yearly Holiday Show, performing three songs, including “December Nights,” “Sleigh Ride” and the Elvis Presley favorite “Santa Claus Is Back In Town.” Conducted by Carol Walcoff, the children dressed in a 1950s style and featured some special cameos at the end of the program. Principal Dr. Jennifer Meglemre wished all the families happy holidays and congratulated the children and their teachers on presenting a fun program.
