Students Rewards & Events

St. Nicholas Day – Chair: Karla Hall

Do you know the tradition of St. Nicolas Day? Children leave shoes or stockings outside of their bedroom door or on the hearth on December 6 (sometimes with carrots or hay for his white horse or donkey). The next morning, they will find a simple gift, and often a candy cane (which represents his crozier, or staff/shepherd’s crook). It’s a great story because it allows for the opportunity to teach kids about giving to those less fortunate, and to come up with a way to give back during the holiday season. For our St. Nicholas Day Celebration, students put a shoe out in the hallway during the school day and we fill it with simple candies and gifts.
