The K-3 Christmas Concert



On Wednesday, December 18, 2019 the K-3 students of IHMS entertained an appreciative audience with their performance of a musical play entitled:




The manger scene at the end of “The Noel Critter Motel”


As has been the tradition at IHMS for many years, the students performed the play twice that day in front of a live audience:

  1. A matinee performance at 1:30 p.m.
  2. An evening performance at 7:00 p.m


Parents and relatives unable to attend the evening show were happy for the opportunity to attend the matinee performance, which was identical to the evening show but a lot less crowded. Both concerts took place in the school gymnasium, which had been set up with a large stage, bleachers, and professional lighting and sound equipment.

As is the case with all K-3 concerts, The Noel Critters Motel” was a musical play with an underlying story about the birth of Jesus.

The Noel Critter Motel

It’s not just another day at the Tiny Bit of Heaven Motel in Bethlehem. The motel, which is run completely by animals, is actually a stable behind a small inn. Two friends, Annie and Betty, are reporters for the Bethlehem Chronicle News and snoop around for clues regarding Caesar’s census. They, along with several other characters, are about to have a life-changing night when a certain “Stranger on the straw” comes to Earth to change the world forever!


The concert was very well received due to the hard work and dedication of a lot of people. Of course, the cast members spent a lot of time practising and memorizing their scripts. Remember, this is a big job for the cast members because they’re only in kindergarten to grade 3! For such tiny little actors, they did a fantastic job.


Since the concert was a musical, there was a lot of singing by K-3 students!


Also, a special note of thanks to the primary grade teachers, especially the school’s music teacher, Mrs. Stanowych, who organized the concert and prepared the students for all the songs. For the past few weeks, Mrs. Stanowych sacrificed many hours practising with the students and perfecting the script. It was because of her dedication that the concert was such a great success!
