At lunch on the last day of classes (Friday, December 12), students gathered around our lovely Christmas tree in the hall to exchange Secret Santa gifts. One by one, they stood up, jumped in the air, spun right, spun left and dropped to the ground. Only then could they open their presents! This year’s gifts were an amazing and thoughtful collection–everything from bow ties to camouflage Santa hats to candy to iTunes cards to Superman pajamas. There was even a tee shirt that said “Santa, I can explain….” Secret Santa cheered everyone up and got us all in the mood for the holidays!
