On Thursday, December 20 at 12:30 P.M., the students at John Paul II Center for Special Learning will perform their annual Christmas Program for the public at the Center (1092 Welsh Road, Shillington). The special holiday event includes singing, dancing, and short skits.
JPII’s Christmas Program isn’t your typical Christmas show. It contains both traditional and non-traditional Christmas music and holiday skits.
Last year, JPII’s multipurpose room was at capacity with friends, family, and supporters of the school who gathered to watch the show.
Students practice diligently during the weeks leading up to the show and are able to work on not only social skills, but creativity and self-expression as well. The thrill of the performance is even able to help open up some of our more shy students, allowing them to express themselves in a fun and creative way.
JPII students always take pride in their performances and light up when they see their families in the crowd.
This year, audience members may be surprised when they hear bells coming from the crowd. JPII’s Adult Program will be filling out the room with backup music!
Those in attendance are sure to leave the show with a smile on their face, joy in their hearts, and a reminder of what Christmas really means.
