Goode said Thursday morning's concert was a step in the right direction.

"Our goal is to give every child the opportunity to perform," she said.

Kindergarten teacher Missy Holley was proud of all of the students.

"They all worked really hard on this," she said. "They have been practicing since we got back from Thanksgiving (break)."

Holley said the performance brought out an emotional response in some parents.  

"One dad said it brought tears to his eyes," she said. "As successful as this was, we will do it again."

 One of her students, Parker Slade, 6, said he enjoyed singing "We Wish you a Merry Christmas" for the crowd and a few of his family members.
