Kindergarten puts on ‘Snowman Extravaganza’

Kindergarten students at Westside Elementary School put on a “Snowman Extravaganza” on Friday. There were two shows, due to the number of students taking part in the show.

The students sang “The Perfect Hat,” “Five Little Snowmen,” “I’m a Little Snowman,” “I Built a Little Snowman” and, of course, “Frosty the Snowman.”

The students also built snowmen as a family project, and they came up with creative ideas. There were Superman and Batman snowmen, as well as a sheriff snowman and one that was modeled after a teacher.

“This is their first presentation as a group,” said WES principal Connie Brown. “This is an annual event for our kindergarten teachers and students. They do this every January, and the children look forward to it.

“Building the snowman is a family project. The family all works together and brings them and shares them with the school. I think every parent that I saw coming in with them came to the school yesterday wearing smiles. I think they enjoyed doing this as a family and bringing them here.”

Westside will also be visited on Monday by representatives from United Blood Services who will present a program to classes about donating blood and how it works. Brown said that she hopes to get at least one student family member from each class to donate blood at UBS’s Westside blood drive on Monday, Feb. 9.
