Second graders at Polk Central Elementary spent the weeks before Christmas getting in the holiday spirit.

Under the direction of teacher Michelle Richardson, the students learned about holiday traditions in America, Mexico, Germany and England. They also had a fun-filled week with different themes for each day, including Reindeer Day, Craft Day, Pajama Day and, of course, a Christmas party where students played a fun left/right game that ended in them all taking home a Christmas mug filled with a packet of hot chocolate and a candy cane.

What a great way to end 2020!
