I don’t think we have done this before, but the students seemed to know they didn’t want to miss out. Some of them didn’t have PE shoes here, and with the snow, they couldn’t go home barefooted. They got creative. They made cardboard shoes, they shared a pair, someone even used mittens and labeled them shoes. 🙂
This morning they weren’t disappointed, for St. Nick had arrived, and no one received coal.
Here is the poem that was left with the chocolate coins:
We remember this saint, such a holy, good man.
Be like him in charity, do all that you can.
Call him “Santa” or “Saint,” they both mean the same,
For his nickname is Claus, short for Nicholas’ name.
Giving gifts was his custom–we still do today.
Deeds done in Jesus’ name forever will stay.
Happy St. Nicholas Day to all!
