Did you ever take time to watch the stars in the night sky? Did you ever make a wish on a star? Did you ever hear anyone journeying by night and keeping the right path by watching the stars?
These and other questions found special answers in this year’s Christmas performance, They Watched the Stars. Following the theme song by the 8th graders, the K5 students answered the question “How far is it to Bethlehem?” in one of their songs. Choirs of students in 1st, 2nd, and 3nd grade also added their own layers to the story of travelers and the birth in Bethlehem.
As the tale moved to the closing scene, the 8th graders transitioned from a kazoo-based March of the Kings to a sensitive song reflection of Mary, Did You Know?. The entire ensemble concluded the story of that first Christmas with Unto You this Night.
