St. John Bosco Academy held their annual Christmas Play on December 17th.  This year's production was written and directed by Gina Lustig and was called "The Wonders of God".  All students in Preschool through 12th grade participated by portraying many of God's wonders.  Students depicted butterflies, trees, sea creatures, snowflakes, the stars, fire, little children, farmers working the soil, lightning, and of course God's greatest wonder: the gift of his Son at Christmas.  The program was performed for a live audience as well as being streamed on Facebook. Pictured from top down are: Kindergartners Elizabeth Warren, Ruby Weckman and Hannah Hinds sing as Angels announcing the Birth of Jesus. 1st Grade students recite a poem about the special creation of children.  Left to right are: Harley Arnzen, Scarlett Frei, Emily Seubert. Fifth and Sixth Grade students sing and dance to a song about lightning. Photos submitted by St. John Bosco Academy. Click on each photo for a larger view.
