Dressed in their finest wintery plaid, approximately 60 students, in grades three through eight, accompanied by church organist Joe Giordano, andDiaz, on guitar, sang heartwarming Christmas songs, after which time Sunset Park BID Executive Director Renee Giordano invited the OLPH eighth graders to officially light the 18-foot tall tree.
