Original songs: students with musician Rachelle van Zanten at Decker Elem.

December 20th, 2018

Another first for me was attending Christmas concerts in the afternoon. Both schools in Burns Lake held their Christmas concerts at 1:00 p.m. and the gyms were packed with very appreciative parents and families.  Today was Decker Elementary’s concert. Wow!

Original songs were written by students in partnership with local musician Rachelle van Zanten. In the grade 1/2 class one young student played the violin while others accompanied on xylophones and FN drums. There was variety from poetry to original and classic songs, from candle lit Hallelujah to Dancing with the Stars type variety show checking talent at the North Pole. It was fun and entertaining. You could feel that Christmas was approaching quickly–especially when the following day was P.J. day at school!
