We celebrated our 21st Annual Christmas Program – It’s a Small World – with over 300 guests. Children organized performances representing the seven continents. The Langham Creek High School Madrigal Choir kicked off our show with classic Christmas carols, and our children welcomed their families with the Pledge of Allegiance. Our Toddlers became penguins representing the continent of Antarctica and a Kindergartner recited the story of the Gingerbread Man Down Under. Our Primary students performed folk dances from Austria Mexico, and Japan and later recited a folktale from South Africa. Our children ended the night performing as a band and singing a Peace anthem, sung by Montessori schools around the world. Santa arrived with two alpacas courtesy of Bluebonnet Hills Alpaca Ranch, and children took professional photos courtesy of Alumni parent Susan McLeroy, Realtor. Thank you to our amazing families who brought cookies and treats representing over 30 different countries.
Our December 2016 Doll of the Month represents Santa Clauses around the world. We visited Mexico, Holland, Italy, and Sweden, exploring their winter traditions for Santa Claus. We also celebrated Hanukkah!
The International Doll of the Month spotlights our 75+ dolls representing the diverse heritage of the Cy-Fair community. We use the dolls to teach children about ways of life around the world.
Students took to the stage to perform songs, dances, and musicals to welcome the holiday season. This year’s theme was “A Winter Wonderland.” The show kicked off with the Langham Creek High School Madrigal Choir and ended with our Percussion Band, where students demonstrated their learning in rhythm and musicality. Santa arrived in a red 1970’s convertible (Thanks Skip’s Farm!) and students took professional photos with Santa, courtesy of Alumni Parent Susan Mcleroy.
Last Friday, Montessori Preschool @ Copperfield held its 19th Annual Christmas Program, A Hat-ty Christmas, and over 200 people attended.
Throughout the year, students learn about music and drama and present an annual show in anticipation of the Christmas holiday. Students learn about rhythm and drama.
The show opened with the Langham Creek Chamber Choir, led by Director Christopher Fiorini. An annual tradition, the choir dressed in Renaissance attire, singing traditional Christmas carols and a hilarious rendition of the Twelve Days of Christmas.
This year’s program followed the journey of a hat peddler, who needed to sell enough hats to buy a Christmas tree for her family. She met construction workers, Mexican dancers, sailors, business men and collected several hats, before encountering a field of monkeys who stole her collection and threatened her happy Christmas holiday. Luckily, she threw her hat to the ground and the monkeys followed, and later exclaimed, “Monkey See, Monkey Do!”
The Spanish class sang Rodolfo el Reno, which was followed by our annual Percussion Band, a group of the oldest students who showcase skills in discipline, rhythm and concentration, led by a student conductor.
The program ended with Santa’s arrival on a decorated Ford F-150, and of course, every student received their Christmas present.
