REED CITY — It was a packed gym Tuesday afternoon, Dec. 20, at G.T. Norman Elementary in Reed City when family members and friends poured in to watch the youngsters take part in the annual Christmas program.

A whole variety of music was the day’s offering, with these second graders doing much of their music performance singing in Spanish.

The crowd appeared to love it. Of course, whether or not they knew any Spanish at all, they likely knew the tunes and thus the message that was being sung for their enjoyment.

Youngsters with marimbas kept time to some of the songs, and one little boy took a quick time out to spot, then crouch at someone special he saw in the crowd.
