Breakfast With Santa Thank You

Santa and the Breakfast with Santa Committee would like to extend a 'BIG' thank you to everyone who came to visit with him last Saturday! We would like to thank all the committee members, food volunteers and student volunteers for all their contributions. A special thanks to Tom Kenny and Randall Matthis for their behind the scenes efforts to make this event so successful. Thanks also to the Pre-K 3 & 4 classes & teachers who made the holiday festive artwork displayed on the walls of the gym. Another big thank you to the “Elves," an SVMS family band (Bongiovanni family), for once again sharing their musical talents!! 

We had 5 contests at the event and the winners of the contests are below:
