Breakfast with Santa was a great success

So well planned, so well organized was the “Breakfast with Santa” on Saturday at Clanton Elementary School. Children were color coded based on parent’s wishes for Santa pictures. Final pictures were approved by parents, they were told when and where to pick them up as the line kept moving at a steady pace.

Other activities and breakfast were just as well organized. Children went from one craft to next with no confusion. Children had a chance to perform on a child sized stage directed by a talented young lady who kept going with recorded music if there was one child or ten children on the stage. Every inch of lunchroom holiday decorated, even wrapped packages on the wall. Santa and Mrs. Clause were dressed as if they had just been dropped off by a North Pole sleigh.

Walker and Allie left with a handmade ornament to hang on their tree, Grandma with a cherished photo. Clanton Elementary staff and others, who helped, consider yourselves acknowledged and appreciated.
