This week at Campus Community School ended on Friday with Principal Leroy Travers attending the lunch time holiday sing along dressed something like an Elf on the Shelf from the Island of Misfit Toys.
Principal Travers, as show in the photo, is actually wearing a tutu as a payoff for a bet.
According to Mr. Travers, "The Cougars Reaching Out club approached me and asked if I would wear a tutu if the school raised 500 pounds of canned food for needy families in the area. They thought the little guys would like to see that. The school raised over 600 pounds."
Mr. Travers sends along his wishes for the winter break, "On behalf of Campus Community teachers and staff members, I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season. We look forward to an extremely successful 2015."

During the month of December Campus Community School students learned the story of holiday traditions from around the world.
The first part of the study was finding common elements between all five. Students learned that using candles, family meals, cultural stories, as well as gift-giving, are all four of the common elements.
Students studied how traditions are reflected in art work, and looked at how light in many cultures is an inspiration to stories, holidays, and music. The students were asked to design or create a light source helping to celebrate or focus on one of the stories or events.
Mrs. Boland’s Art Club and Mrs. Schafferman’s fifth grade class worked together to create large hallway murals displays of the five world cultural holiday traditions.
