Musicians of the three Panther Valley School District bands performed before a packed auditorium this week. Seen are students Jesse Thomas and Jordan Reis of the high school; Cailyn Gould, middle school; and Robbie Stempa, elementary school. Starting the program, the Elementary School Band led by Karen Grebousky rendered a selection of Christmas favorites. This was followed by the Middle School Band under the direction of Joseph Ogozalek who did a superb job playing mixtures such as "Up on a Haunted Housetop". The final performance was a lovely selection directed by Mark Christ. Joining in that concert were students from Jim Thorpe, and Weatherly. The last performance was a handbell entr'acte performed by Cassie Binder, Drusilla Laughman, Steven Reehl, Gail Christopher-Lazar, Zach Gilbert, Audrey and Mark Christ.
