Hundreds of parents and family members were on hand as students in grades 2 to 5 took part in the Tamaqua Elementary School's annual holiday program Friday in the school's gymnasium.

The program involved music, songs, dances and a holiday chorus video students could sing to.

Brayden Knoblauch, 10, made the audience and students laugh with his surprise worm dance during one of the songs.

Santa also arrived and read a story to the children.
