 Families came together at Park View Elementary on December 9th to share Christmas stories and candy canes. Parents brought their favorite Christmas stories and read to their child and friends. Everyone was given a candy cane to enjoy while appreciating the story. Everyone needs a friend during Christmas, and the characters in books, like Frosty, Rudolph and the Noble Fir, can become our best friends. Special thanks goes to all the parents who made this an exciting event for all the children at Park View.
