WDE students enjoyed Breakfast with Santa. Students wrote letters to Santa, ate breakfast, and spent some special time with St. Nick. Parents enjoyed the silent auction and watching their children interact with Santa. If you haven't seen the Teddy Bear Christmas tree in the atrium, stop by! It's a great place for a few pictures of your children. Thank you to the WDE PTO for sponsoring such a great event.
