Jolly old St. Nick visits Powers

Santa Claus made his annual visit Friday to Powers Elementary School on the last day before winter vacation. The big man in red is seen here talking with children in Natalie Schneider’s first grade classroom, where each shared their holiday gift wishes. Principal Debbie Waller donned an elf cap to spread holiday cheer throughout her building. In one room, she told young students: “Everybody can give a free gift. It’s kindness.”
