year’s Christmas Program (Yolka) was a musical version of the
Nutcracker, directed by Mr. Seraphim Winslow and Mrs. Veronika Bozhich.
Students from grades K-6 participated by singing, dancing and acting.
The wonderful performance was full of truly gifted actors and dancers.
Following the play, St. John’s was honored with a visit from the
General Consul of Russia and his wife, Vladimir Nikolaevich and Lyubov
Vladimirovna Vinokurov. The Consul had come to congratulate the
students of St. John’s with their studies in Russian language and
literature and to give awards to those who had excelled in these
classes. This was followed by a visit from Ded Moroz, who brought
gifts, riddles and laughter to the children awaiting him. Many of the
children spontaneously performed by singing and reciting poetry. A pot
luck dinner was shared by all the families attending after Ded Moroz
went on his way. See photo album for more photos.
