Santa’s Workshop Celebrates 13th Season

Milford High School students hosted children from Morris Elementary, The Greater Milford Boys and Girls Club and The Learning Center (TLC) on Friday, December 16 during their 13th annual 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 to paint faces, read books, and interact with characters such as Clifford the Red Dog.

This was an opportunity for members of service clubs and career technical education students to give the students of Morris, Boys & Girls Club and TLC 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.

“We are expecting to see 800 children this year,” commented Mr. Tkack, Milford High School Football Coach. “ As you can see we really try to give the kids a total holiday experience.”

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.

Over 200 high school students and 22 teaches participated in the Santa’s Workshop Program this year, committing their time and talents to ensure that every child had a holiday experience. 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”.
