Congratulations to our young performers and Mrs.Tomtishen, for taking us on a fun musical adventure which saw 12 drummers drumming, 11 pipers piping, 10 lords-a-leaping, 9 ladies dancing, and all of the rest of the famous characters from the classic holiday song, help get Party down from the pear tree! Great job everyone!
