Caliente Elementary students acted out the Nativity, while singing “Silent Night” during their Christmas play.

It was a karaoke Christmas at the Caliente Elementary School on the evening of Dec. 10.

Putting some rock ’n roll dance moves to some favorite songs, each class wowed the audience. As is tradition, the final number was everyone singing “Silent Night” with the nativity onstage.

Hayley Gloeckner presented Principal Sharon Dirks with a check for $1,800 from the Gingerbread Fun Run, telling everyone that out of the 202 participants, 130 were from Caliente. Dirks said the money will go towards outdoor tables since the kids enjoy being able to eat outside in warmer weather.

With Santa onstage and a long line waiting, the PTO served cookies.
