On December 12th, 2014 the Assumption Catholic School Auditorium in Perth Amboy, NJ was packed to the rafters with parents and grandparents that had come to see and hear the 2014 PreK-8 Christmas Program. Every student was standing tall, singing loudly and smiling at the crowd. There were lots of Christmas songs that covered all interests and the clapping from the audience demonstrated their appreciation. All students in the school were very excited about being up on the stage singing for their families. This year, the Bethlehem Peace Light was brought to our school before the concert. In December, a candle was lit in the Grotto of Christ’s Birth in the Church of the Nativity, in Bethlehem. This flame has been transported across the world by scouts. This chain of lights is a symbol peace, warmth, love and family. The flame brought a lot of happiness and joy to all participants at the concert. Thank you to all who attended, our students, our teachers, the program planner Mrs. Melanie Lawrence and of course the music teacher Miss Anna Lawrence.
