The Surface Creek community's Christmas spirit was serenaded in the season's best style as Cedaredge Elementary School music students of Andrea Kallson performed their annual concerts at the school last week.

On Tuesday, the fourth and fifth graders opened the three nights of chorale performances with a 1950s, rock 'n' roll-themed program. There were poodle skirts, bobby socks and saddle oxfords on display as the girls, along with the boys, who sported crew cut styles, leather jackets and white shirts with sleeves rolled up, matched voices, performing their Jingle Bell Jukebox program.

Mr. Grinch made an appearance during the performance. But the singers banished his anti-Christmas attitude to its solitary mountaintop with the students' voices singing "Sleigh Ride" and the Christmas carol medley, "Santa's on His Way." The school's upper classes performed "Comin' up Christmas Time" for their jolly finale.

The second and third graders gave their Christmas program performance at the school on Wednesday night to another packed house of appreciative parents and other family members and friends. That entertaining evening was followed by the cutest kids in the school singing their ways into holiday hearts.

The kindergarten and first grade students told a musical story that had a triumphant note. The Littlest Christmas Tree on the lot overcame the slights of bigger trees to become Santa's favorite and personal choice because The Littlest Tree showed that it knew the true meaning of Christmas.

The littlest students assembled on risers in the gym, decked out in Christmas tree costumes made in class from paper grocery sacks with cascading green boughs of evergreen they had fashioned using construction paper colored with green crayons.
