It is the annual tradition, on the last day of school before Christmas break, for the Eden Valley-Watkins staff to put on a Christmas variety show for elementary students. This year, neither distance learning nor COVID-19 could prevent them from repeating that tradition.
The big difference this year: the audience was online, with the entire show broadcast on YouTube. (You can find a link to the video on the EV-W district’s Facebook page, and from the district’s website as well.)
Another difference this year was a guest host: Elvis (otherwise known as Lionel Ward, English teacher Ms. Ward’s father).
The show was a little shorter than usual, without the usual games, scene changes, and audience participation. But it was full of the same Christmas spirit,
creativity, and exuberance.
The group performance went on Tuesday, Dec. 22, the last day of distance learning for EV-W students before Christmas break.
