Elkins High School’s Santa Bus Tour stops at area elementaries during holiday season (12/15/2016)
FORT BEND ISD (December 15, 2016) – Elkins High
School students representing various clubs and organizations came together to
complete a Santa bus tour that visited two nearby elementary schools – Lantern
Lane and Quail Valley – to spread holiday cheer.
Elkins counselors Richerica Wolf and Braiyon Sands coordinated
the event with input from elementary counselors Mynette Mayes (Lantern Lane)
and Jessica Rodriguez (Quail Valley), who identified elementary students who
would best benefit from the event and gift donations.
At each campus, the teens formed a human arch and
cheered as the youngsters entered the rooms. They also sang holiday songs (such
as “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”), and
read holiday stories (including Clement Clarke Moore‘s Twas the Night Before Christmas and Mooseltoe by Margie Palatini) to the youngsters before presenting
them with gifts.
“The whole purpose of the Santa Bus Tour is to help
youngsters celebrate the holiday season, while motivating them to be future
Elkins Knights,” said Patrick Schultz, EHS Assistant Principal.
