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.
