Sounds of the Season

Mrs. Bucsko December 4, 2015

Our school is like a local radio station…. when Dec. 1st hits, the music all changes to everyone’s favorite, Christmas songs! I have worked in many schools that prohibit the playing of holiday songs and hold their seasonal concert in November. Not at St. Paul’s. Here we celebrate the sounds of the season!

Visitors, parents, and students are greeted when they walk into our building by Ms. Sue Ann’s Christmas play list. Students are belting out classic hymns throughout the school preparing for their Christmas concerts (3rd -5th grade is Dec. 15th). Our K-2nd grade will also be singing, and acting during their Nativity performance on December 17th.


We started with Little Epistles Preschool for two years and we were very happy there. Then, for kindergarten we thought we would try another school. After that year, we made a decision to move our son back to St. Paul’s Academy, and we couldn’t be happier with our decision. We feel the school caters to all areas of students needs: academic, spiritual, and physical. Maxwell loves St. Paul’s Academy very much.- Sue Day, Returning 1st grade parent



While we are having lots of performances happening internally we also have been spreading cheer out into the community. Today, many 4th graders joined the Middle School to perform to the crowd at the Port of Bellingham Holiday Festival. Our 1st graders will be visiting the Woodway Inn on Dec. 10th to sing to the residents there.

When December comes we all feel the spirit of Christmas and want to show it through song. It is one of my favorite things about working at St. Paul’s.
