Summer, winter, spring and fall—Dragon’s Wagon Preschoolers sang about them all.
“Sailing through the Seasons” was the theme for the annual preschool program held in the HHS auditorium Friday, May 6.
Preschool students entertained with songs and rhymes, decked out in colorful head pieces and hand-held props.
Flowers, snowflakes, leaves, raindrops, bumblebees, cornstalks and more graced the stage as proud students shared their songs.
A successful auction was held during the program, with numerous items going to generous bidders as part of the fund-raising activity for the local preschool.
A silent auction was a new addition this year, with winners announced during the evening program.
