Cataline elementary takes off on Polar Express

Cataline Elementary School concert features a skit based on The Polar Express.

Cataline Elementary School vice-principal Hattie Darney sends her thanks and congratulations to all the students and staff members who worked so diligently to present an exciting Christmas concert at the school last week.

She says it was an exciting concert based on the popular movie The Polar Express.

“The singing, dancing, and acting were wonderful and heartwarming,” Darney says.

“At the end of the concert Jenna Barbondy and Thomas Kaiser captivated us with their singing of a beautiful duet, Believe.

“It was also amazing to have over 600 audience members attend between the matinee and the evening performances,” Darney says.

“A special thanks to the Christmas Concert Committee, the student technicians and artists, and Ms. Swift and The Drama Club!”

In December the school also hosted its annual dinner for seniors and families involved in the school’s intergenerational program. In this program students study part of the time at the Seniors’ Village with the residents.
