In Pictures: Mountain View’s very last Christmas Concert

By David F. Rooney

The tight-knit Mountain View Elementary School community celebrated the end of an era with the institution’s very last Christmas Concert on Wednesday evening.

Slated for closure when the new elementary school is completed next year, the school held a marvellous concert with performances by all grades for the entertainment of a standing-room-only crowd of parents, siblings, friends and teachers.

Here is a series of photos from the concert. I hope you enjoy them:
