The stages, classrooms and hallways of the Port Jefferson School District were filled with the melodies and rhythms of music at the most festive time of year.

The elementary, middle school and high school winter concerts were joyful celebrations for the community, staff, families and friends throughout December.

Members of Earl L. Vandermeulen High School’s Tri-M Music Honor Society delivered holiday carol-grams to the delight of recipients and onlookers. Organized by music teacher and adviser Christine Creighton, students surprised and charmed school staff, including Principal Christine Austen, and friends with a holiday carol, tinsel and garland.

High school students, under the leadership of Michael Caravello, director of music and fine arts, and music teachers Edward Pisano and Katherine Butera, entertained the Board of Education and community members with select seasonal songs at the December meeting. The Board honored them with certificates for spreading holiday cheer in the community.
