On Saturday November 24, South Huntington held the first annual Winter Wonderland that brought the spirit of the holiday season to the district children, families and all those involved in making this day such a success. With over 600 people joining in the new holiday tradition, it is no secret that numerous parents, staff members, and students were impressed by the decorated building and holiday activities put together by our staff and volunteers. The event gave district children of all ages the opportunity to sing songs, create holiday cards for our troops and enjoy gingerbread cookie decorating in honor of this special season. Students and their families had the chance to have their photo taken with Santa, Dreidels, and winter-themed backgrounds created by the Art Honor Society as a way of remembering this joyful event and celebrating the holiday season.

We offer special thanks to the numerous faculty and staff members who dedicated their time to this special event, and are particularly grateful to SEPTA, as well as our Latino Heritage Club, Art Honor Society, Girls Leaders Organization, and Huntington Muslim Youth Group for the countless hours that they spent preparing the Wonderland and entertaining our excited preschool and elementary-aged guests. It is amazing to note what can be accomplished when great teachers, administrators, staff, and students are given the room they need to create something special.
