After school, on the last day of school before winter break, more than 100 choir students from Blendon broke into smaller groups to perform carols around the community.




Blendon Middle School’s choir students on December 19 took to the streets to spread some holiday cheer through the centuries old tradition of caroling.

Eighth grade choir students walked to Whittier Elementary to sing for the students and staff that morning.

“This is the fourth year for the field trip,” said Joshua Ice, vocal music teacher. “While it serves as one of the biggest recruiting tools for our program, it also gives our students the opportunity to do some good in the community through charitable work.”

After school, more than 100 sixth- through eighth-grade choir students went caroling throughout the neighborhoods around Blendon Middle School.  While spreading holiday cheer through song, students also requested donations. In just two hours, they were able to raise $717 for Neighborhood Bridges and collect four large boxes of non-perishable food items for a local food bank. The event culminated with cookies and hot chocolate at Blendon before all involved went home to start their much deserved break.
