McKenzie Middle School Presents Christmas Program

Posted

McKENZIE (December 19) — McKenzie Middle School wrapped up the fall semester Thursday with the annual Christmas Program before dismissing for Christmas break.

Hayden Garrett served as emcee for the program and welcomed all students, teachers and guests.

The MMS band performed “Jingle Bells,” “Up on the Housetop,” “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and “Twas the Parade Before Christmas.”

A pair of students from each grade and two teachers then competed in “Wrap it Up.” The pairs had to lock arms and wrap a present using only one arm each.

Sixth grade students then performed a short play, “Christmas Is.” The seventh grade followed with “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” More sixth graders then took the floor to perform “The Santa Dance.” Eighth graders performed a dance to “All I Want for Christmas” and other songs.

Next, seventh grader Nathan Lease sang “O Come All Ye Faithful.”

Then, one student and one teacher from each of the school’s “houses” teamed up to compete in a Christmas video trivia game.

A dozen teachers performed a teacher parody of “The Twelve Days of Christmas.”

Winners of the ugly sweater contest were announced: teachers Mike Pershell and Bess Toombs, fifth graders Emma Haynes and Ripken Thompson, sixth graders Haylee Beard and Aiden Mason, seventh graders Olivia Steen and Emmy McMullin and eighth graders Madison Thomas and Brady Brewer.

Ava Warman recited “The Meaning of Christmas,” and the band followed with “Holly Jolly Christmas” and an encore of “Twas the Parade Before Christmas.”

Principal Dorethea Royle then made some end-of-semester announcements and dismissed students for the break.
