Students from Elgin Public Schools took to the stage last night with lots of holiday cheer and good will. Under the direction of music instructor Deb Jones, band, vocal and elementary classes gave it their all much to the delight of the audience. Last night’s performance was the second - and final - school Christmas concert held this week (PJCC & St. Boniface students performed on Tuesday night). Here, “Santa” got a big surprise from the girls in the high school choir. E-R photo
