Saint Nicholas Day Celebration

Every year, St. Philip the Apostle School has a Saint Nicholas Day Celebration as an entire school. This year the school got to celebrate on Tuesday December 6 during family activity. First every student in the school left a shoe outside the classroom for Saint Nicholas.

Then each school family met in their assigned classroom for a family activity. Once all the families finished the activity, all the students walked to Holy Angel Hall and sat together.
There SPAS students learned the story of Saint Nicholas and had some fun by answering questions based on the story and facts from the family activity assignment.

After spending some time in the hall, the classes were dismissed, class by class starting with kindergarten, where they went back to their classrooms to find a yummy surprise waiting for them in their shoe. Inside each shoe was a candy cane and a clementine, which was left by Saint Nicholas. Saint Nicholas Day was a fun tradition that the entire school got to take part in.
