The students of State Street Elementary were recently treated to a visit by the one and only Santa Claus. Mr. Claus recited the classic poem "The Night Before Christmas" and sang Christmas carols with the entire student body. After ...the carols, he gave each child a book and a State Street wristband. The books and wristbands were provided by three local churches (Oakland Church of the Nazarene, Oakland United Methodist Church and First United Methodist Church), and the students were delighted to receive them. As Santa handed a book to each child, many felt compelled to give him a hug and let him know what was on their wish list this year. It was a heartwarming day, filled with songs and smiles. We hope our little friends at State Street enjoyed their special visit from Santa Claus!
