St. Andrew’s Day School sings with joy for the holidays

| December 22, 2014 | 1 Comment

Seventh and Eighth Graders from Saint Andrew’s Day School celebrate the Holiday Season each year sharing a joyous tradition of bringing music and holiday cards to Annapolis area assisted living homes. Senior residents at Gardens of Annapolis, Somerford Place and Brightview in Edgewater enjoyed listening to students perform a number of traditional carols, including old favorites that had audiences clapping, smiling and singing along. Residents at all three facilities received holiday cards made by Saint Andrew’s Pre-K through 6th grade students once the concerts had ended.

Accompanied by the 7th and 8th grade teaching staff, Music Director Tom Jackson, and others from Saint Andrew’s Day School, approximately 40 students spent the day spreading good cheer – and much to the delight of everyone, the day ended with big hugs from student J.T. McDermott’s grandmother, a resident at one of the facilities.

“It’s a privilege for our students to be able to visit with the many great people we met today.” observes Head of School Mark Wagner. “This is a valued tradition for our students and we hope we were able to help make the holiday season bright.”

Saint Andrew’s Day School students agree that this holiday tradition is one of the highlights of the school year, and look forward to it as much as the assisted living residents do!

Saint Andrew’s Day School is a Pre-K-8th grade independent school located on the Annapolis border, in Edgewater, MD. For more information, visit www.standrewsum.org.
