  •  It was a musical night for the students at Roby Elementary.

    The various classes served as the opening act for Santa Claus, who was there on Friday evening to greet the youngsters of all ages.

    Before Saint Nick began talking with the kids, students at Roby provided music of the holiday season. The audience was even encouraged to sing along during some of the holiday favorites.

    After the music, Santa got the gift ideas and crafts were done in the cafeteria. Vendors sold various holiday gifts items.
