Families from all over Mount Vernon came to Rebecca Turner Elementary School during the afternoon on Saturday, December 14th for the Mount Vernon City School District’s A Very Merry Holiday. “Today has been put together to bring our community together, to celebrate our kids and to make sure everyone had a festive holiday,” said Superintendent Dr. Kenneth R. Hamilton. He then shared with the audience one of his favorite holiday songs, singing a rendition of The Christmas Song. The event included carols performed by students from various schools, a visit from the Grinch, photo booths, gift basket raffles and treats to eat, such as hot dogs, cotton candy and popcorn. After the performances, families had the opportunity to make ornaments and garland to bring home for their own Christmas trees and have their photos taken with Santa Claus on stage.
