 In Pioneer School’s holiday program finale, 97 of Weiser’s sparkling kindergartners took the stage at Weiser High School to put on the first of several Christmas specials they will present over the next six years.
 Led largely by their classroom teachers, along with some direction from elementary music director Shelby Aldrich and piano accompanist Tara Nordgren, the class groups opened the show with a sweet presentation of “Silent Night.” Each class was represented by one student in costume angel wings during the number.
 They followed up with “Joy to the World,” in enthusiastic five- and six-year-old fashion.
 A tried and true group speaking number, all five classes recited “Three Little Christmas Trees” before singing “Up on the Housetop.” Another recitation followed, “The Chubby Bunny,” featuring two students, one dressed as a snowman, and the other as a cute bunny.
 The tried and true “Jingle Bells” was sung with vigor, followed by “Tapping Elves,” a number about Santa’s toy builders. The students then recited “When Santa Comes to Our House,” followed by a joyful rendition of “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.”
 They closed out the show with “We Wish You a Merry Christmas,” much in the same spirit that many of their parents had done only a few years ago.
 The community’s holiday season traditions seem to continue from generation to generation.
