Thomaston Grammar School presented its Winter Concert Dec. 13, with students from all grades participating.

Kindergarten students performed "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer," "Snow is Falling Today" and "Frosty, the Snowman," learning some new words along the way. First-graders practiced integrating reading and music by performing a song play based on of the story “The Mitten” by Jan Brett. Second-gradee students used their knowledge of the "Nutcracker Ballet" and learning musical forms to perform a plate routine to one of the songs from "The Nutcracker."

Third-graders started preparing to sing partner songs by learning the two different parts to "Shake the Papaya Down/Mamma Don’t Wake Me." They also learned a bit of history about Russia from the time period in which the movie "Anastasia" was based when they learned "Once Upon A December."

Fourth-grade students worked hard learning their recorders and working towards their black belt for Recorder Karate. They are currently working on their green belts. Finally, fifth-graders have been working on singing songs with harmonies and put that practice to the test with their "First Footprints" song. In addiiton, some of them were soloists during "Let it Snow," and the fifth-grade dancers had some help from teacher Tabbitha Johnston learning their tap routine to "Hot Chocolate."
