The Christmas season is here, and we are excited to celebrate the amazing gift of our Savior’s birth with our Linfield family! You won’t want to miss any of the annual festivities, so check out the following list of upcoming Christmas performances on all three campuses.
December 1 @ 8:20 a.m. – ES Polar Express
A favorite Linfield Christmas tradition, the Polar Express consists of the first and second graders, who, after reading the famous story, work with their parents to design and decorate their own train car costumes for the big event. Led by their enthusiastic conductor (and ES Principal), Mrs. Washburn, and Train Engineer ,Mrs. Sharp, the young members of our Linfield family will proudly parade past an adoring crowd that starts at the elementary school and winds up through the administration parking lot. Come cheer them on and check out their amazing costumes!
