SANTA DISPATCHES CANDY CANE KID - Santa Claus (Jayce Ellis), after getting wind of some naughtiness in a western town, sends ace feel good elf (Ty Ely) to round up the trouble and save Christmas.

The annual Christmas Concert on Dec. 8 showcased the musical and acting talents of the entire elementary school in “Christmas at the OK Corral,” (top), as well as guitar arrangements, and band performances by the fifth and sixth grades, and the junior high-high school under the direction of music teacher Barry Beckett. The students used new instruments purchased with last summer’s generous donation by PIMCO.
