A Season to Remember For PS 256 Students
On Friday, December 15 P.S. 256Q Elementary Sites were invited to “The Little North Pole” at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Muré of Neponsit. Students were greeted by Sesame Street characters and enjoyed the vast display of holiday decorations. They were treated to snacks, sipped hot chocolate and listened to music provided by the chorus from Christa McAuliffe Intermediate School 187 and guitarist Andrew Kenna. Finally, the children were surprised with a visit from Santa Claus who opted out of driving his usual sleigh and reindeer to be brought in by “New York’s Bravest.” Captain Whelan commanded E268 and L137 for the visit. Each student left with a beautiful gift and memories that will last forever, as well as presents from various organizations such as the St. Francis de Sales Senior Citizens, the Rockaway Artists Alliance and the Graybeards.
