Elmwood Elementary School's 2021 Holiday Show took place Thursday, Dec. 16, in front of an audience of enthusiastic family members and friends — the school's first in-person concert in two years! For safety and health reasons, the show actually consisted of separate mini-concerts, one featuring the 1st graders and the other featuring the Elmwood Choir and the 2nd graders.

The 1st graders began their performance at 5:30 p.m., followed by the choir (consisting of 4th and 5th graders) at 6:30 and 2nd graders about 15 minutes later. The staggered schedule allowed for social distancing among audience members as well as a change of audience after the 1st-grade performance.

Music teacher Meredith Olson directed the show, which featured holiday favorites punctuated by lively group choreography. Principal Matthew Lerner and Assistant Principal Stephanie Hagins served as master of ceremonies. 

Mr. Lerner and Ms. Hagins concluded the show by presenting Ms. Olson with a bouquet of flowers in appreciation of her efforts. Thanks to everybody who came out to Elmwood Gym in support of our amazing student performers!
