Our school district tech department worked very hard to set up a video conference with Santa way up at the North Pole. Classes from three different schools got together virtually in the library with our Grades 1, 2 & 3. Each enjoyed a half hour visit with Santa, Mrs. Clause and even the Grinch, who at first was warned away with popsicle Grinch wavers that the kids had made, and then eventually was given a heart or two by the benevolent Claus’.
Santa showed us his sleigh, the reindeer stable and Comet as well as his office where he and Mrs. Claus read all the letters. Then by magic, he took us to many famous landmarks throughout the world as a little preview to his coming tour. He answered questions from the students and he and Mrs. Claus led a sing-along that the students happily joined in on.
