Students at the Early Childhood Center received a very special visitor on Monday, Dec. 16 — none other than jolly old St. Nick himself!
Actually, the real Santa Claus was still in the North Pole busy with last-minute Christmas preparations, so he sent a substitute, Mr. Doug Meyers, the father of Elmwood Elementary School 5th-grade teacher Ms. Roberta Predovich. But you could hardly tell the difference!
With ECC Principal Mr. Kevin Seibel serving as host in the school's all-purpose room, Santa/Mr. Meyers read "The Night Before Christmas" to students and had his picture taken with them. He visited twice — once in the morning and again in the afternoon. Thanks for visiting all of our students, Santa — and thank you too, Mr. Meyers!
