The Fort Plain Jr./Sr. High School Class of 2020 collaborated with Santa Claus to bring some holiday magic to the kindergarten classes at Harry Hoag Elementary. The kindergartners were visited by Santa and the senior class on Dec. 18 to give the children an opportunity to share their wishes, listen to stories and receive some goodies.

Each child got to visit with Santa and tell him what they wanted for Christmas. While they waited to tell Santa their Christmas wishes, they listened to the seniors read “How The Grinch Stole Christmas.” The class took Polaroid pictures of each student with Santa and created ornaments the children could share with their parents.

The students in Lisa Trembley’s English 12 class worked for weeks to prepare for the visit. The seniors consulted with Santa and helped him reply to each kindergartner’s letter to him, and they read the replies to the students after they met with Santa. The seniors also prepared for the visit by creating ornaments and goody bags and baking cookies for every kindergartner.

“The Class of 2020 had so much fun visiting with the elementary children, especially reading their letters to them from Santa!” Trembley said. “Merry Christmas to all!”
