Schools celebrate holidays

By NEMS Daily Journal

Shortly before departing for Christmas break, students from across Northeast Mississippi celebrated the holidays with plays, meeting with Santa, collecting items for the needy and enjoying an assortment of other activities. Students at Shannon Primary baked cookies, made gingerbread houses and presented their wish lists to Santa. Those at Saltillo Elementary sold crafts and treats to raise money for St. Jude and LeBonheur children’s hospitals. Meanwhile, the Mooreville Choral Department presented its annual Evening of Delectable Delights, as guests enjoyed dessert, coffee and hot chocolate while listening to the performances of sixth- to 12th-grade students.
