Christmas in the Kingdom

Collinsville, Miss. West Lauderdale Elementary School hosted its first ever "Christmas in the Kingdom" event Thursday night.

Students sang Christmas carols all throughout the school, while the parents toured the school to see all the ornaments and christmas lights in the building. The event served as a fundraiser for Arts in the Classroom as part of the school's arts integration program.

"We have had a wonderful time. It has far exceeded what we expected it to be, so we are really proud and definitely will be doing it again," said West Lauderdale Elementary principal Rosemary Harris.

A Sweet Shoppe in the cafeteria also served hot chocolate and cookies for everyone to enjoy. The principal says several hundred dollars had already been raised.
