Students bring Christmas cheer in many languages
Christmas came in many languages for some seniors Thursday.
The Panama City Trilingual School and the North Bay Haven sign language club visited two different senior living facilities to sing and sign Christmas carols.
Abigail Fehnrich, a student at the Panama City Trilingual School said, "I sang Chinese and English and Spanish songs."
The Panama City Trilingual School recited poetry in Spanish and sang in three languages for those at the Superior Residences of Panama City.
The students are immersed in all the languages at school and love it when they can show what they know to the others.
Jennifer Singletary, the Spanish teacher said "These kids are learning so much, and they have been working really hard for this performance."
In the end, all of their hard work paid off.
"My favorite part was that I got to sing in front of so many people," said Fehnrich.
The sign language club at North Bay Haven visited the St. Andrews Bay Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
The second graders are learning sign language in a club started by their teacher. Some of the seniors were moved by the song.
Their teacher, Erin Cypher said "When you sit and watch and just listen and watch the movements it's like, very emotional, very powerful."
