This evening we had the middle school year-end choir. It was conducted under the new tent accquired by the school. First Kindergarten kids performed their musical numbers, about four of them.

Then the middle school and elementary school performed their musical numbers about six of them. In some there were more students than the rest due to the need for saparanos.

Despite the cold weather it was fun to watch the kids sing.
