Santa brings joy to students

Smiles and laughter filled the Sheckler Elementary School building Dec. 20 while students enjoyed holiday parties. Santa made a visit to the students in their classrooms and brought them each a gift of a Sheckler lunch bag and then listened while they each told him one thing they would like for Christmas.

Teachers were given a gift card and Home and School purchased three mats for the schools gym and provided breakfast for the teachers.

An extra special thanks goes to Santa for taking time out of his busy schedule to pay Sheckler a visit.

Students enjoy spirit week

Thursday, December 27, 2012 by The Press in School

This past week Lehigh Valley Christian High School had its annual Spirit Week. It was very fun and full of spirit!

On Monday everyone dressed in pajamas and on Tuesday the students showed their love for their favorite sports team, whether they liked being a Cougar or a Flyers fan.

Wednesday was superhero or villain day and everyone was very creative. Thursday was nerd day and proved to be another fantastic day full of students having fun.

On Friday, the last day of the week, it was spirit day and everyone showed their school spirit by wearing red shirts.
