For this year’s Holy Angels Christmas Program, the combined West Bend Catholic Schools Band started the evening with a selection of Christmas melodies, including Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, Jingle Bells, and Silent Night. They also performed a whimsical Diary of a Grumpy Elf which detailed the days leading up to Christmas.
The student production of “The HAS Christmas Carol Special Report” followed. The 8th grade led the program as news reporters from around the world interviewing locals from different countries. These included Australia, Germany, Spain and Italy. The play included some rather interesting humor and proved to be informative as it featured many carols that are traditional songs from each country.
This program also featured the five-year-old kindergarten, as well as students from first, second and third grades.
Prior to and after the show, seventh graders hosted a Christmas Cookie Cafe to collect money for charities. The profits were sent to the Milwaukee Rescue Mission as we reach out to others with Works of Mercy.
