Students at Canfield Local Schools elementary schools, C.H. Campbell Elementary School and Hilltop Elementary School, celebrated the holiday season at the schools’ annual holiday classroom parties Dec. 20.
In the afternoon on the last day of school before holiday break, students enjoyed a party in their classrooms, coordinated by PTO volunteers, during which students played games, made crafts and enjoyed a snack of Christmas tree-shaped cookies.
To celebrate the holidays, the children participated in such holiday-themed games as a snowball bean bag toss, pin the nose on Rudolph, giant marshmallow relay race and Christmas bingo during their parties.
On the more artistic side, the children also made holiday crafts, including foam reindeer ornaments, foam stocking ornaments, holiday door hangers and a fourth-grade class at C.H. Campbell painted glass ball ornaments for their families. All the crafts were all sent home with the students to add to their holiday decorations.
Many students, teachers, staff and PTO wore their holiday finest, including multi-colored Santa hats, reindeer antler headbands, elf hats and holiday-themed clothes and jewelry.
