Project LINC students and staff recently held their annual Holiday Extravaganza. The show, which takes a year to prepare, includes groups at every grade level and a “special” staff performance. Each group chooses their own songs, costumes and dance steps assisted by a staff member. The majority of the props, decorations and costumes are created by the students and staff. A huge audience attended this year’s performance that included classic holiday music such as “Here Comes Santa Claus” and “Sleigh Ride.”
“What a great way to start the holiday season!” said Project LINC Site Coordinator Cheryl Stone. “Every year our audience gets bigger and bigger. I am so proud of my LINC staff and all the students!”
