St. Lawrence School will host their Christmas programs on Wednesday, December 9. This year, students are divided into two groups due to COVID. Preschoolers through second graders perform at 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. Third through sixth graders perform at 2:10 p.m. and 7:40 p.m. An intermission will be held between the groups. The school requests families attend only the portion of the program their child is in. They also advise grandparents and senior citizens to attend the matinee, which is usually less crowded.
Both programs feature “angel choirs” singing the message of Christmas. Some of the messages include: Do not be afraid! Your prayer has been heard. Nothing is impossible with God! And The Lord is with you.
Principal Brenda Anderson says, “Our prayer is that the message of the angels will speak to us today as we open our hearts to experience the true meaning of Christmas.” Preschoolers through second graders plan to sing several songs. Third through sixth graders present the musical, The Touch of an Angel, with the assistance of fourth graders on recorders and fifth and sixth graders on chimes. Sixth graders will also be dressed in costumes of the nativity to help tell the Christmas story.
Sixth-grade soloists include: Heyden Montag (Mary), Caitlyn Frerichs (Gabriel), Ella Pederson and Lydia Boswell (angels), and Jaxson Wiese (Joseph). Shepherds are Bri Hicks and Safirah Sperry. Wise Men are Liam Street, Aiden Kelly, and Ivy Dreis.
