‘A Countdown to Christmas’ in Poteet
Right before they started dreaming of sugar plums dancing in their heads a group of students from Poteet Intermediate Campus put on a theatrical performance for the community. Funds raised from the annual event go to the school’s gifted and talented program‘s annual trip to the Majestic Theatre.
The Dec. 16 performance included two new changes to the PIC‘s theatre night. The first was a dinner before the performance. The second was the play performance, A Countdown to Christmas, purchased from music line productions, was a musical. In addition to showing off their acting skills, students also showed off their musical talents. To help aide our young thespians, a choir was selected to perform the songs along with the stage performers.
The evening’s entertainment was rounded out with gingerbread cookie decorating and a silent auction. Gingerbread cookies were baked by Ms. Laurie Stephens’ high school Family and Consumer Science classes. Ms. Sharon Chilek and Mrs. Lettie Bautista spent many hours gathering donations from several local businesses and community members.
We would like to thank everyone for all of their support. Without your help the evening would not have been as successful. Supporters include Dairy Queen, Brush Country Dental, Rice Furniture, Strawberry Festival Association, Whiffeltree’s, Friends and Family, Don Juan’s Restaurante, Louie’s Fashions and Accessories, Nest Feathers, Mrs. Ann Bates, Mr. Green’s Building Trades students, Custom T’ and More, Ms. Lynn Rankin, Wilco, DES, Ms. Mary Zabel, JJ’s Woodworking, Poteet custodial and maintenance departments, Mr. Edward Solis, Mr. Adolph Ortiz, Ms. Christi Mills.
