Crafts, games, gift exchanges, cookie decorating, pajama and pizza parties, breakfast, and poem creation were all activities planned by parents and teachers to prepare for the holiday excitement.  

Here is a poem written by Mrs. Marsh's second grade class:

Glitzen

There once was a reindeer named Glitzen,

Who had a crush on Blitzen.

He was so cute,

And never a brute,

She always wanted to kiss him.

The PTA organized a wonderful event for the students of our school, Christmas Books and Candy Canes.  Parents, elves and even Mrs. Claus were asked to come and share their favorite Christmas Book; each student received a Candy Cane to munch on while they listened to the stories.  This was a fun way to get into the Christmas spirit.  Thanks to all those who helped organize this special occasion for the students.
