Pence winter concert
Pence Elementary School students gather in song for their annual winter concert Monday evening in the Fairfield High School Auditorium. Above, all three first grade and second grade classes sing together under the direction of Pence music teacher Connie Keller. Right, a group of second graders perform as Christmas trees from left, Ryan Higgins, Drew Twohill and Isaac Harris. Kindergartners performed “Five Little Snowmen,” “If I Could Fly Like a Snowflake,” “Red and Green” and “Gingerbread Cookies.” First and second graders performed the play, “The Littlest Christmas Tree.” It tells the story of how the littlest Christmas tree shows everyone the true meaning of Christmas. Cast members included Andrew Titze as Santa Claus, Olivia Sandbothe as Mrs. Claus and Libby Ferrel as the Littlest Christmas Tree. Isaac Harris, Drew Twohill, Shelby Baldosier and Ryan Higgins also played trees. Erin Epperson, Dumoluhle Dube and Samantha Williams performed as elves. The students began working on the music and script early October.
