Sunrise School celebrates the holidays

Christmas came early at Sunrise School when students were treated to a memorable day packed with holiday activities Dec. 21.

It was quite an eye-opener when the day began with breakfast. None other than Mr. and Mrs. Claus strolled through the cafeteria and mingled with all the star-struck kids.

Next up was a concert performance by the Gateway Middle School chorus and orchestra. The sweet sound of carols filled the gymnasium as the students, dressed up in holiday attire, sang along.

The school library was transformed into the toy store of their dreams, thanks to incredibly generous toy donations from the Presents from Police program. Acting Chief of Aspinwall Police Department Dave Nemec and Deputy Chief of Millvalle Police Deprtment Michael Vith were on hand, as well as patrolwoman Jennifer Harper.

Gifts for boys and girls of all ages wrapped around the entire library, with just enough space to have a photo session with Mr. and Mrs. Claus.

The last activity was a horse-drawn carriage ride around the school. The kids got to admire the beautiful horses and then sat tight in a cozy carriage.

Thank you to everyone who made this day such an incredible success and a memory that will last a lifetime! Happy Holidays from everyone in the AIU Special Education Division!
