Centerburg Elementary School second-graders kicked off the holiday season with a special program set to the book “The Spirit of Christmas” by Nancy Tillman, Thursday evening. The young students danced, drummed and sang to Christmas favorites, like “Jolly Old St. Nicholas,” “Jingle Bells” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas,” under the direction of music teacher Anne Teschler. The Centerburg Holiday Concert Series also features a raffle to benefit the Centerburg Music Boosters, with a drawing Dec. 17 at the High School concert. For tickets email
