We truly enjoyed Santa Bruce’s visit this Christmas Eve. He spent time with the children, reading, answering their holiday questions, passing out gifts and taking family pictures. The expressions on our little one’s face was unforgettable. Thank you Santa Bruce!
We have a very large family and he was the hit of the season.
Thank you so much for being a great Santa to our school!
