CRESTVIEW — Parents of kindergarten students at Northwood Elementary School recently gathered to watch performing arts in action with a Christmas concert from all of the kindergarten classes.

Parents gathered in the school's gymnasium to see the children perform numerous Christmas songs, including "Frosty the Snowman" and "Silent Night" among other favorites.

The students even recognized the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah with "I have a Little Dreidel" song. Several students also read a line from an adapted version from "The Night Before Christmas" poem. 

 Karey Estingoy was happy to see her 5-year-old daughter, Amelie part of the program.

"We feel really fortunate to come to the Northwood Arts and Sciences Academy, they are really putting an emphasis on the arts," she said. "We really care about the arts."

The emphasis comes from the school's new principal, Dr. Donna Goode, and installing a new arts curriculum for students at the school.

This school year introduced students to drama, dance and music in the arts and sciences academy.
