Virgie Luce The sixth grade at Brady Elementary decorated the bulletin board in the hall for Christmas. For a border we made a chain that is very fancy. It is made of two shades of green and one of red. We put a homemade Christmas tree in the middle and two bells on each side. We also put the words "Merry Christmas" below the tree. The tree is made of cardboard and is decorated with many tiny toys, small sequins and big sequins which have pearls in the middle. Cheryl Heimbach George Anderson, from Peterson Handwriting. recently taught writing to the fourth grade. He showed us how to hold our pens and taught us how to sit in our seats correctly. He also showed us how important slant is in the letters. We have been trying our best to have nice writing on our writing specimens. We enjoyed his writing class very much, and are trying harder than ever to write correctly. Tide Ripples Dorothy Antes Nancy Gillen, Sherry Gill Frances Coledo Marcia Evanko Susan Schalk Joycux Noel! This and other sounds of Christmas came from the French II class this week. Those melodious sounds are from the throats of students singing Christmas carols in F r e n c h. From the Spanish classroom came sounds of Christmas carols sung in Spanish. The Christmas edition of Tide-ette appeared before vacation. For a new wrinkle this year, the staff included only Christmas writings. This year the annual Student Council program had a new look. Instead of students putting on the program, the teachers were requested by the Council to perform. Their efforts included readings by Miss Mallon and Mr. Dimmick, musical numbers by Mrs. McCarl and a men's chorus, and a play. "The Second Marriage of Santa Claus," which included as performers Mrs. Bobanick, Miss Debelak. Mrs. Lingle, Miss Loss, Mr. Brubaker, Mr. Pav-lock and Mr. Seiner. The annual Christmas dance sponsored by the Student Council was held Wednesday evening in the gym. Music was furnished by Judge Lynch and the Hangmen. *#*-*##*#-x-#-x--x-#-*#*#-*###*# We are very glad that so many people came to our school on Dec. 15.
