Fourth graders are in charge of community outreach for the holidays. Every year they perform at the Christmas Tree Lighting at the Community Center and their principal sings with them. The singers also perform at the Pacifica Chamber of Commerce’s annual Rockaway Christmas Tree Lighting. Fifth graders do their “Great American” breakfast early in the New Year. “Each child chooses a great famous American,” Stafford said. “They do a poster about their person, they learn how to do that ‘character’ in drama and they create their costume to become that person at the breakfast. They also provide informative brochures for their attendees (parents) to read. Some of the famous met over the years have included Neil Armstrong or Ella Fitzgerald. There is also a music element to their program where the students present American songs such as ‘Yankee Doodle’ and ‘America the Beautiful.'”.
