Students present Christmas play

St. Thomas More fifth and sixth graders presented their annual Christmas play Dec. 11 for all students, and then again on that evening for the public in the school's auditorium-gymnasium.

The play, titled "Is There Room for Christmas?" was scripted and choreographed with original lyrics and music by Natalie Seng Pionegro, director of music and liturgy for St. Thomas More parish and school.

The play portrays the concept of looking beyond the distractions in our daily lives, no matter how attractive those things may be, and finding the real meaning of Christmas.

Dear Secret Santa...

Wednesday, December 19, 2012 by BEVERLY SPRINGER Special to The Press in Local News

Dear Secret Santa,

You have probably never visited the Active Learning Center located on Windsor Drive in Allentown. If you do, you will be pleased.

Two hundred children, who range in age and ability from infant to middle school level, attend.

Dedicated teachers direct the 10 classrooms and create a pleasant and engaging learning situation. The students are quite obviously involved in learning letters and colors, math and vocabulary. The play area is jumping and the interior is bright. The descriptor that leaps to mind is "active."
