Kindergarten children signed and sang “Sing” from Seasame Street as well as “America” where they captivated the crowd with their charms.

First, second and third grade grouped together to perform “Green Eggs and Ham” and “Shake Rattle and Roll”, where they did plenty of ‘Shaking’.

The entire elementary got together in the end singing “Fireworks” to express th
