Naughty or Nice?

Students at Social Circle Elementary are definitely on Santa's Nice List. All semester, they have worked to earn an invitation to the Communities In Schools "It Pays to Be Good Celebration." Three quarters of the student body earned the privilege of attending the celebration, which featured pizza and a visit with the jolly old elf, Santa himself!


"This has been the best December I can recall," said principal Jodi Weber. "The children get so excited, and sometimes their energy comes out in their behavior. But this year, they knew this event was on the line, so they tried extra hard. We have all kinds of discipline policies and consequences, but the kids have to want to behave."


Watch the video below and find out what students, teachers and volunteers had to say about the event.
