It's that Christmas Season and Amy and Sarah represented Valley Oaks Charter School in the annual Bakersfield Christmas parade. Sarah and her friend Jordyn carried the Valley Oaks banner while Amy and her clogging friends clogged the night away. With their new teacher, Kacey, they performed Country Christmas, Jingle Bells, and an old Elvis song, Santa Bring My Baby Back. It was an exciting day as their picture was featured in the Bakersfield Californian and the parade televised. Even the following morning on local news stations, coverage of them dancing appeared on TV.
Along with the holiday season, Amy participated in the Valley Oaks Oral Language Competition and placed first for humorous solo. She will compete in a regional contest next! Her winning piece was called, "Help, Send Candy Bars" It fits Amy pretty well!
