CHANNELING SANTA

Local children bring the holidays to life with activities around town
by: LORI HALL Third-graders have a jolly good time mimicking Santa Claus during a Stafford Primary School holiday party.

Students in Kristina Hilal's and Amy Gilkey's third-grade class held a holiday party Dec. 15. As one of their activities, the Stafford Primary School students tried to make Santa-like beards by dipping cotton balls in petroleum jelly and sticking them to their faces. Other activities included decorating cookies, making friendship bracelets and playing elf tag.

All throughout town, students in West Linn schools celebrated the season with concerts, breakfasts, crafts and giving to those in need.
