You Better Watch Out!

You better watch out. You better not cry. You better not pout. I’m telling you why... Santa Claus is coming to Abingdon!

Watauga Elementary School’s third graders recently attending a showing of “All I Want For Christmas is my Two Front Teeth” at the Barter Theatre. It was an entertaining show about a group of students who wanted to win the school trophy for having the best talent show. Only, one student was not sure she had a talent. Her father shared a family talent with her and taught her to whistle. She was to be the centerpiece at the Christmas Extravaganza. Unfortunately, in a run in with the class bully and a hockey puck, she lost her two front teeth and her whistling talent! We do not want to spoil the ending in case you have not seen the show, but let us just say that the students learn that Christmas really is about being nice to others, and recognizing that sometimes, we fail to see when people around us are simply feeling left out.

We really enjoyed the show and want to wish you a very Merry Christmas, and BE GOOD FOR GOODNESS SAKE!
