On Saturday November 30th, South Huntington hosted the second 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 this new favorite holiday tradition, it is no secret that numerous parents, staff members, and students were impressed by the decorated halls 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 hot chocolate and decorating gingerbread cookies in honor of this special season. Students and their families had the chance to have their photo taken with Santa, our brightly lit Menorah, and winter-themed backgrounds created by the Art Honor Society as a way of remembering this joyful event and celebrating the holiday season.

Thank you to Hidden Smiles Orthodontics for sponsoring this year’s event! We also would like to 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.

Following the day’s festivities, everyone was invited to join us in our Christmas tree lighting and Menorah recognition. Local religious leaders from all denominations came to honor and bring light to this tradition, embracing the holiday spirit as a tight-knit community.
