News for 12/26/18

Thunder Ridge Middle School held their annual Christmas program Monday evening, December 17, under the instruction of new music teacher Annie Adams. The Pre-K provided special numbers under the guidance of their teacher Amy Abbott and teacher’s aides Roberta Quanz and Amber Saddler. Kristi Reneberg returned as a special guest, aiding with accompaniment.

Each grade, 4-8th, was showcased with individual songs for both band and vocal. The grand finale “Joy to the World” invited the audience to sing along while the band played and all grades and vocals combined. It was a wonderful evening of emerging musical talents, wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas from the TRMS.
