Santa’s Workshop

Milford High School students hosted children from Morris Elementary on Thursday, December 16 for the Santa’s Workshop Program.  The elementary school children had a chance to visit Santa’s workshop, bake cookies with Mrs. Claus and even had the chance to tell Santa himself what they want for Christmas.  The children were escorted by elves that helped paint faces, read books to them, and interact with characters such as Cat in the Hat and Clifford the Red Dog.  

This was an opportunity for members of service clubs and career technical education students to give the students of Morris the chance to experience seasonal activities.  The high school students used the skills they have learned in class from designing the backgrounds, building toys and mentoring children.  “This program is so wonderful.  Not only does it give kids the opportunity to have fun during the holidays but it teaches our high school students responsibility,” commented Mr. Leibo, advisor for the event.

The Milford High School has been putting on this production for years and has brought a smile to so many children’s faces.   It truly is an impressive scene to watch the high school students interact with the younger children. “For some of them it is the only Christmas they get.  I had a 6 year old child tell me this was the first time he had ever seen Santa.  That just tugs at your heart,” stated Mr. Pickard, advisor.

This event is always made possible because of donations from community leaders. Unfortunately, the program is running up against funding difficulties and they are trying to find a way to fund future Santa Workshops.  Teachers and parents involved urge the community to not let this great event disappear. It has been made possible year after year because of local donations. 

Hundreds of children from the Milford area enjoyed a great experience while looking up to the older students.  Each student got to go home with homemade cookies, books, wooden toys and some advice from Santa to always be “good boys and girls”.
