St. Nick’s Celebration
Bourgade Catholic High School, AZ
To increase the holiday spirit and feeling of goodwill, we started a Saint Nicholas Day celebration. The student council researched the history of Saint Nicholas, and with the faculty’s approval it was announced that the morning of December 6 (St. Nick’s feast day) students would leave one shoe outside of the classroom during first period. The executive board then traveled around school, sticking a candy cane in each shoe. This was an easy way to make students feel the holiday spirit in our school community.
