Weiser’s tour of holiday school programs continued on Tuesday, Dec. 12, with Pioneer School’s 92 currently enrolled second graders performing to a packed house in Weiser High School’s auditorium.
 In her first season at the helm of Weiser’s lower grade music programs, Shelby Aldrich led the joyful ensemble through a well-done choral production holding six festive musical numbers, plus poems presented by the individual classes.
 The program opened with a fun presentation of “Jingle Bells,” followed by Mrs. Chandler’s class poem, “Once There Was a Snowman.”
 A toe-tapping Christmas number, “Frosty, the Snowman,” was next in the lineup, with Miss Smith’s class then reciting “My Gingerbread House.”
 A favorite from the 1951 film classic The Lemon Drop Kid starring Bob Hope and Marilyn Maxwell, “Silver Bells,” was a fresh number in this season’s school program repertoire. Mrs. Barnett’s class then performed the poem “Five Little Reindeer.”
 “Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer” was the next featured number, followed by Ms. Moore’s class’s recitation of “Santa Claus.”
 A new favorite among Weiser’s elementary classes “When Santa Got Stuck up the Chimney,” the story song describes Santa’s dilemma while caught in a tight chimney, and sneezing reaction to the dust in the small space. Miss Blue’s class then presented the poem “What I Love About Winter” followed by the program finale “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”
