OVANDO - "Dear Mrs. Claus" was the name of the play performed Dec. 19 at the Ovando Gym. "How do reindeers fly? Why does Santa wear red?" and other pressing questions were flooding Mrs. Claus' mailbox just before Christmas. Mrs. Claus turned to the elves expert advice to send answers with help from Buddy, her Personal Elf Assistant. 

A musical showcase began the evening with students performing music accompanied by Matthew Nord, of Tangled Tones Music Studio, Missoula. Nord has been teaching the music program since this fall. Ukuleles and xylophones were the instruments of choice.
