Art City Elementary school has a tradition to sing around the Christmas tree every year. This year they gathered in the gym, with the tree on the stage, and sang their hearts out as well as danced with a Just Dance "Crazy Santa" video. Even teachers were doing the "Crazy Santa". The students were really surprised when, who should walk through the door? Santa! Some may say that Mrs. Muirbrook was just as excited for this special visitor just to see the excitement on the students faces.
