On Thursday, December 18th Santa and five elves came to the Latham School Campus to shower each and every student with a well-thought-out gift. The holidays are a special time at Latham Centers when students and staff celebrate the season of giving and show appreciation for one another.
The party started with a performance by the Latham Bell Ringers led by Humanities Instructor, Suzanne Johnson. Next, Latham singers and dancers glided across the stage singing a variety of Christmas classics like Jingle Bell Rock. When Santa finally walked into the room there were cheers of excitement. Individual gifts were distributed one-by-one, each carefully selected based on each student’s wish list. Hugs were received, smiles were given and holiday cheer was felt from corner to corner.
This day marks for many the last to celebrate with peers the holidays prior to heading home to families. For others, in which Latham Centers is their only home, this marks the first of many traditions on campus.
Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy holiday on behalf of all the students, adult residents, and staff at Latham Centers.
