On December 15th, Morrisburg Public School opened its doors to parents and children for a holiday celebration, Christmas Craft Night.
For one hour, the school and its classrooms were open and ready for those who wanted to stop by and take part in a little Christmas cheer, complete with the sounds and smells of Christmas.
On entering the school, parents and students were greeted with the smell of warm, delicious hot chocolate. In addition, there was a bake table readily available for those who wanted a snack with their cocoa.
Each classroom was filled with happy holiday music, prepared by none other than the students themselves. The popular holiday songs, sung by the students, were shown via video in each class. If parents missed the first presentation, there was always another coming right along after, as the videos were played on an infinite loop in each classroom.
Different classrooms offered different options for fun Christmas crafts to make. In many classrooms, parents worked alongside their children designing some festive ornaments for their trees.
The atmosphere was fun, warm and inviting and the night held the opportunity for children to give their parents a guided tour of their school, which was nicely decorated with Christmassy art projects handcrafted by students from all grades.
For parents and teachers, this offered a wonderful opportunity to chat informally outside of regular school hours and away from the sometimes dreaded parent-teacher interview.
All in all, the night proved to be fun, productive, and delicious… just what Santa ordered to get into the Christmas spirit.
