Schools: Christmas Cheer, Fall Scholar-Athletes

Keeping with tradition, students at Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School shouted, danced and swayed to holiday classics during the school’s annual holiday sing-along on Dec. 20.

Harborfields High School students joined district teachers and retirees on the auditorium stage and sang songs, including “Frosty the Snowman,” “Jingle Bells” and “Santa Clause is coming to town.”

The day’s festivities followed a performance by the school’s orchestra on Dec. 19.
