This is what Christmas is all about, say Lynelle Jelgerhuis and Gayle Haarsma, 5th graders In Mr. Apotheker's class room. Hon. The 6th grade band students also presented a program for the entire Orange City grade school last Friday. The schedule of appearances by the young people was arranged by their music teacher, Mrs. Wlnegar. The string students are under the direction of Mrs. Breeze and the band students are under the direction of Mr.McGilvra. Cooperation was given by each of the various grade level teachers who assisted when their class was traveling to the place of their performance. Certainly this Christmas season should be a richer and fuller one because of the experiences they shared during the past few weeks. Children carol throughout O.C. Christmas this year certainly must have a little more meaning for many children In the Maurice Orange City grade school. In addition to the usual Christmas parties and Christmas decorations In the various rooms, the children of various grades shared their time and talents with shut-Ins and the elderly. On Dec. 3 the 5th graders spent time carol singing at the Hospital Bazaar, they visited the bazaar In the A.M., the same afternoon the 6th graders sang for the visitors at the bazaar.

On Dec. 9 all of the 4th graders went caroling at the home of Supt. Frank Hulsart, the 6th graders caroled at the Hulsart home the next day. Supt. Hulsart is confined to his home after suffering a heart attack. One section of 1st graders went to visit their classmate, Brian Mulder, who has been confined to his home since school started this fall. While visiting Brian they sang some carols for him. The same day the third graders along with the third grade string students entertained the residents of the Pioneer Home. Also having their meeting at the Pioneer Home that afternoon were the Senior Citizens, so the children were able to entertain them as well. The 5th graders took a second trip to carol, this time going to the Pioneer Home, while on the way home they stopped to sing carols for the grandparents of one of the MOC grade school teachers, Mr. and Mrs. Vander Wei, who are now making their residence at the Steglnks. One section of 6th graders visited the Heritage House and two sections of 3rd graders went to the county home on the same day. The children rounded up their Christmas carol singing by providing entertainment for themselves, and their teachers at a carol sing for the entire grade school. Each class provided a special number and then the entire student body along with their teachers sang carols. A similar program was held In Maurice. This was done yesterday before the children left on their Christmas vaca- As joy and laughter fill the air during the Christmas season, we wish to take a moment to add our best wishes and thanks.
