During the week of Thanksgiving, our Lower School takes on an additional 600+ people to become the happiest place on earth. We’re not sure if the students or their special guests have more fun. Students perform musical numbers, tell their best new jokes, tour guests around the school and spend time in the classroom working on fun projects.
Each child in the Lower School participates in the holiday program, which tells the stories of Christmas and Hannukah. From choir angels and actors, to musicians, narrators and tech crew, our students know how to put on a meaningful holiday performance. Both shows draw a packed house, and because extra seats are hard to come by, the live performance is streamed on Knightflix.
While we love our varsity and junior varsity cheerleaders, even the pros need a little support from the Junior Knights, our Lower School cheerleaders. Lower School girls and boys of all ages help their older friends cheer on the Knights on both the football field and the basketball court. Expect a larger crowd when they perform.
