Kindergarten students perform the First Christmas

Kindergarten students captured the beauty of Jesus’s birth in their production of the First Christmas. The beloved tradition of this Christmas play began in 1987.  
Claire Evans ‘35, Welles Henry ‘35, William Kay ‘35, Ella Rostad ‘35, Halston Van Horn ‘35, and Ethan Yates ‘35 narrated the performance. They retold the story of there being no room in the inn for Mary and Joseph, played by Anna Kate Brown ‘35 and Bridger Brinks ‘35. Students lifted their voices as a choir to sing to Mary and Joseph that there was “no room!” 

The three wise men, played by Liam Adams ‘35, Greyson Brewton ‘35, and Judah Juhn ‘35, brought baby Jesus gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh as told in Matthew 2:1-12. 

The performance also featured inn keepers, shepherds, sheep, cows, doves, mice, camels, and angels. 

Students sang popular songs like “Away in a Manger” and “Go Tell it on the Mountain” during the performance as Lisa McNearney, elementary music teacher, played the piano. 

Thank you, kindergarten students, for retelling the story of our precious Savior’s birth!
