Westhoff Elementary Presents Season of Love

December 12, 2022

By Kelli Gile, WVUSD Office of Community Resources

WALNUT, CA--Westhoff Elementary students delivered plenty of holiday cheer during the winter performance on December 9.

“We are grateful to be able to hold this event after a three-year pandemic hiatus,” shared Principal Dr. Rosa Northcott.

“Our students are ready to dazzle you today!”

Transitional kindergarten through fifth grade students took the stage to perform special holiday songs complete with costumes and choreography.

Adorable transitional kindergartners opened the show with “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.”

Kindergarteners wearing leis and sunglasses sang “Merry Hula” followed by the first graders’ rendition of “Run, Run Rudolph.”

Second graders performed the delightful “Frosty the Snowman” and third graders rocked out to “Reindeer Jive.”

Talented fourth and fifth grade performed “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and “Snow Snow Snow” featuring dance, gymnastic, scooters, and skateboard solos.

At the conclusion, student council members presented a $3,000 check from proceeds of holiday gram sales and donations to Bithiah’s Family Services.

Walnut High School teacher and coach Keith Thompson and wife Michelle founded the non-profit organization that provides resources and support for foster and adoptive families and those working with vulnerable children.

“You have no idea how special this is!” Thompson said of the Westhoff gift that will provide diapers, toys, clothes, and school supplies.
