TLC's Second Annual VIRTUAL Secret Santa Party

Only a few days left before Holiday Break for the TLC schools. This year we held our second annual Virtual Secret Santa Party to celebrate the holidays together!


Everyone agreed that we should dress-up in our best "Holiday-Wear" for the party! Here is Monhegan's 7th grader and I looking snazzy in our holiday outfits, waiting for the party to start!

 

Let the festivities begin! We had all six TLC schools there to celebrate together!

Everyone looked very festive in their Santa hats and red and green! The Isle au Haut boys were all matchy-matchy in their hats!

 

And the Ashley Bryan School looked full of holiday cheer! Wait, are they eating SNACKS!? Man, we have to figure out how to share snacks virtually!

 

After a holiday welcome, a lot of cheering, and "Ho! Ho! Ho! - ing" it was time for each of the schools to open the gift that they received in the mail from their Secret Santa school! Monhegan Island was the first to open their gift...


 

Wow! Look at that awesome homemade puppet that was made as a gift! Again this year, the TLC student council voted to have all of the Secret Santa gifts be homemade or MOSTLY homemade! That just makes the gifts all the more creative AND special! Also, in each of the gifts the Secret Santa school was supposed to put in a clue to help the recipient school guess who they were! The Monhegan School guessed that their Secret Santa school was the Frenchboro School and... THEY WERE RIGHT!

 

Next it was the Isle au Haut Santas turn to open their gift!

 

Their gift including little home-made Santa sleighs that were made completely out of edible materials! DELICIOUS! It took a few guesses, but they finally figured out that their Secret Santa school was Matinicus!

 

Up next, it was the Cliff Island School who were ready to tear open their gift!

 

They got these beautiful hand woven baskets and a really cool Snowman game! Inside of their box there was a bunch of clues to help them figure out which school sent their gift... the last clue in the box said, "Our island's name rhymes with Idaho!" Any guesses!? YES! YOU'RE RIGHT! ISLE AU HAUT!

 

Yay! It was Frenchboro's turn to open their special box of goodies!

 

It was just jammed PACKED with presents and gifts, including an awesome banner for their school! They were able to figure out that their gift was from the fabulous Ashley Bryan School!

 

Only two more schools to go... open your presents Matinicus!

 

 They got some lovely hand-painted Christmas ornaments and some beautiful origami boxes! And who sent such a wonderful and fabulous gift!? The Monhegan Island School!

 

And finally, LAST but CERTAINLY NOT LEAST... THE ASHLEY BRYAN SCHOOL GETS TO OPEN THEIR GIFT! They waited quite patiently for their turn.

 

They were elated to open up a gift filled with homemade magnets, decorations, AND LOLLIPOPS! SCORE! Since they were the last school to open their gifts their guess was a pretty easy one to make... It was CLIFF ISLAND who was their Secret Santa School! 

YAY Secret Santa! What fun we had and what fabulous, thoughtful gifts that were given! Now THAT is the spirit of the holiday season folks! Simple, thoughtful, homemade gifts to kids who really appreciate it! Amen.

 

Of course you KNOW how we had to end our holiday party!?! With a little DANCE PARTY!!! Boy, does this group know how to jingle bell rock AND rock around the Christmas tree!

 

 

And here... feel like you are apart of our special event yourself! Don't we know how to have a good time!

 

Happy Holidays to all, with love!
