Christmas Sing-Along

St. Joan of Arc staff and students are proud to present our 2019 school-wide Christmas Sing-Along. Please join us on Monday, December 16th from 9:30 – 11:30 am in the gym to gather in celebration for the Coming of Christ.  Students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 will be singing a variety of popular Christmas carols and our Grade 7 students will be performing the play “A Super Christmas”. Our Grade 8 students have also prepared some short video presentations.  We kindly ask that parents and guests arrive between 9:00 am and 9:15 am.  Please sign in at the table in front of the Main Office.  Guests are encouraged to stay for the entire performance in order to minimize disruption to the concert.  Below you will find the grade order of performances:
