On December 6th, St. Nicholas paid a visit to Assumption Catholic School! Born in Patara, a land that is part of present-day Turkey, circa 280, St. Nicholas was a Christian bishop who helped the needy. After his death, the legend of his gift-giving grew. St. Nicholas transformed into the legendary character called Santa Claus, who brings Christmas presents to children around the world. Before the visit, all students of ACS enjoyed the wonderful performance by the Senior Drama group under direction of Mrs.Pickering. The play concluded with the students welcoming St. Nicholas to ACS by singing the traditional St. Nicholas Song, “O kto, kto Nikolaja l’ubit.” After Principal’s welcome, 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.
