2A Wednesday, Dec. 21, 2011 Chester Progressive, Westwood PinePress Spreading holiday 00,00eer The walls of Chester Elementary School's gymnasium ring with laughter and song during the annual sing-along. Performing for adults and classmates alike were choruses from kindergarten; first and second grades combined; third grade; fourth grade; and the fifth and sixth grades combined. Here the kindergarten chorus prepares to perform Angel Band, the opening act of this year's event. The gym stayed packed through each performance, with parents and friends lining the perimeter and each class sitting attentively on the floor as their schoolmates performed. CES Principal Sally McGowan said that she was thankful for the music program, and equally thankful for all those that make the program possible in this time of economic uncertainty. Photo by Jason Theobald From the Principal's Desk -- Scott Cory, Principal The events of the past few weeks have caused me to reflect a bit more on what is important in life. Each dayis an opportunity to re-priori- tize and make choices to focus on others: putting others flu:st, right- mga wrong against someone sur-prisg someone by meeting a need unexpectedly.., maybe even resolvingi!}O do something at home that will make a family member appreciate the fact that you're related. Last Sunday we had a memorial seice for Brian Johnson. What was revealed about his life was that he was a person who put others first: family, friends, students, the athletes he coached: and the col- leagues he worked with. The positive impact on the world around him was enormous. He lived a life tha mattered. The holiday season, Christmas, is an opportunity for us to draw close to both those that matter in our persona/lives, as well as in the lives of those that we come in contact with on a daily basis. Does your life matter? Absolutely. llow much does it matter? That's up to each of us. It is my hope that you all have a happy holt-day season. I am blessed to live in Chester and be a part of your lives. To the staff, stu- dents, tatents, and members of the community, Merry Christmas From the Sport's Desk - Terry Hernandez, Assistant Principal/Athletic Director This year's wrestling tournament attracted 18 teams from all over Northern California and Nevada.
