Letters to Santa – Ackerman Elementary – 2014

AES Pre-K Christmas visit
The Pre-K Classes from Ackerman Elementary visited the Choctaw County Library during the holiday season.  They enjoyed having a special Christmas story time.  They also viewed all the Christmas trees on display.  The boys and girls were delighted to see their own AES Pre-K tree.  They had made ornaments for the tree earlier this month.  Afterwards they took a walk around the decorated walking track. Thank you to the staff at the Choctaw County Library and the Town of Ackerman.  Pre-K Staff – Cynthia Long, Sherry Griffin, Jennifer Zirlott and Cecelia Fondren.  (Above) Students at the library.
