During the month of December, Ringgold Elementary Singers were very busy.

The 75-member chorus traveled all the way to Atlanta to spread holiday cheer, while also ringing in the season at home.

They began in early December by caroling for the school's long-time partner, The Ringgold Kiwanis Club, at their monthly meeting.

Next, they performed two shows at the Ringgold High School Auditorium — once for the entire faculty and student body and once for all other family members and friends.

Shortly after, they brightened the holidays for senior citizens at Parkside and guests enjoying lunch at Chick-fil-A in Fort Oglethorpe.

The group then traveled to Chattanooga to listen to the Boys' Choir in their annual Singing Christmas Tree performance.

Following this, a group of fifth-graders traveled to the state's capital city to visit the governor's mansion. They represented Ringgold Elementary and the entire community with pride and pizazz, as they performed their Christmas show for Sandra Deal, Georgia's First Lady.

RES is very fortunate to have such an involved, dedicated music teacher and choral director in Angie Roach. She is always seeking opportunities to spotlight the many talented students at RES. Paws Up! to Mrs. Roach and to the super singers who make up the chorus at Ringgold Elementary!
