Advent Calendar: Christmas at School

It's the annual Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories!  I've participated the past four years (2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012), but this year, there are some new prompts, and the sequence has changed for some old prompts used in previous years.  For the latter, in some cases I'll simply re-post, while in others, I will link to the older posts, and - when applicable - post about something else that's at least somewhat related.

The prompt for today is:  December 13 – Christmas at School

A Christmas pageant, a Secret Santa gift exchange, or a concert singing Christmas carols. There are so many memories of Christmas activities at school that they could fill a book. How did your school celebrate Christmas each year? Were there activities that also involved parents or neighbors?
Tell us about school activities during Christmas and your memories of Christmases past.

I've written about stuff I did in school for Christmas in 2009, 2010, and 2011, and in 2012, about something Eric made in school, in 1993 or 1994.  Here is a program from a winter concert in 1999, when Eric was in the orchestra in eighth grade (he played the cello):
