Musical Leaders Bring Joy to the Holidays

Musical Leaders Bring Joy to the Holidays

The joy of the holidays resonated throughout Reinhard as first-grade students impressed parents and faculty with their musical talents during the annual holiday performance on Dec. 22.

Each class paraded onto the auditorium stage, under the direction of music teacher Randi Andersen, and prefaced each song with a short, introductory poem. Equipped with construction paper candles, David Reilly’s class headed off the performance with “Hanukkah is Here.” Dawn McCardell’s singers surprised the audience with a snowball fight to the lyrics of “Snow Day,” while Angela Coogan’s class expertly performed with bells to “Santa’s Coming.” Laura Siniski’s class sang a Hanukkah medley, turning like dreidels to the delight of the audience. Cathy Schriver’s class danced with their snowflakes to the tune “Snow Music,” and Amanda Kowalski’s vocalists commenced with the popular tune “Must Be Santa.”  

Principal Patti Castine congratulated the students on their performance and on being music leaders in the Bellmore community.
