Each year St. Nicholas pays a visit to the students of Assumption Catholic School. Born in Patara, a land that is part of present-day Turkey, St. Nicholas was a Christian bishop who helped the needy and gave gifts to good children. In Ukraine, children wait for St. Nicholas to come and to put a present under their pillows provided that the children were good during the year. Children who behaved badly may expect to find a twig or a piece of coal under thei…r pillows. On Wednesday, December 6, 2017, ACS students welcomed him with once again much enthusiasm. Students were first treated to a play about St. Nichalas performed by the Junior Drama Club members and then called to the stage by class where each child received a present sponsored by the school ( FSA) Family School Association. As St Nicholas was leaving for the next visit on his list, students returned to their classroom to enjoy their new gifts.
