Students rode the bus to several stops throughout Story, delivering gifts they made over the past several weeks, and singing a lively rendition of "Dashing Through the Snow".

The children came home with as many gifts as they gave out, a testament to the warmth and joy that they are wrapped in all year long by their giving neighbors.

After a very chilly morning, students returned to school to make angels in the freshly fallen snow and warm up with a round of hot cocoa.
