On December 6th, St. Nicholas paid a visit to Assumption Catholic School! The festivities began with a production called “The Real St. Nicholas” performed by Mrs. Bernstein’s 3rd grade class (under the musical direction of Miss Lawrence). The 3rd grade students led students on a musical journey around the world to see how different countries and cultures celebrate St. Nicholas. The production included background on: Santa Claus (North America), Dun Che La Ren (China), Grandfather Frost (Russia), Father Christmas (England), Pere Noel (France), Kris Kringle (German) and of course, St. Nicholas. The play concluded with the students welcoming St. Nicholas to ACS by singing the traditional St. Nicholas Song, O kto, kto Nikolaja l'ubit. St. Nicholas greeted the students and staff with gifts. As St Nicholas was leaving for the next visit on his list, students returned to their classroom to enjoy their new gifts and chocolates donated by our FSA.
