MCC Frozen parody involves students, staff and silly

SLAYTON – These days parodies are as plentiful as snowflakes, but getting a chance to see your high school home economics teacher chase her students out of the classroom with a broom while choir teacher Eli Johnson croons a tune lamenting the fact that Christmas break hasn’t started yet?
