The hallways were strewn with garland. The tree was set up near the principal’s office and holiday cheer aplenty at Covert Avenue School during my time there. I remember being a solider in The Nutcracker and I recall all the pleasantries afoot during the holiday season in the building. From time to time, I recall those memories and, in a positive way, dwell on what was. An era I will cherish forever, Covert Avenue is a Christmas memory worth keeping.
