The ‘Mifflin Express’ steams through Thomas Mifflin school

    On Friday morning, the students at Thomas Mifflin School in Philadelphia performed their holiday play, entitled “the Mifflin Express.”

    The theme of a train rushing towards the North Pole was based on the Hollywood movie, “The Polar Express.”

    Each grade took turns singing and dancing on stage, performing classic songs, such as “Let it Snow”, “Jingle Bells”, and “Winter Wonderland.”

    Principal Mason narrated the train’s tale with the help of Mrs. Spinelli, the school’s health and physical education teacher, who was dressed like a train conductor.

    “The North Pole,” said Ms. Mason, “was a big city and inside the city was the Mifflin school – the happiest school in the whole world.”

    The performance included confetti, roller skates, and xylophone solos.

    The older students mumbled their lines, as some younger students forgot their lines.

    As every camera-wielding parent could tell you, every song and every dance, was purely adorable.
