The Grand County Middle School seventh-grade strings class, under the direction of teacher Carolyn Stiles, spread the holiday spirit through sharing their musical talents on the violin, viola and cello.

Students performed around the middle school in the office and cafeteria, and went over to entertain employees at the school district’s office on Thursday, Dec. 14, before winter break began.
