Polar Express Read Along - 12/3/16
On Saturday December 3rd, 2106 children gathered at the Sparta Train station for an interactive read aloud of the Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. In this standing room only class led by Angelica Freykar, they created character sticks to answer questions during and after the story while enjoying hot chocolate, train cookies and Christmas train themed crafts. Each child who truly believed received a silver bell ornament. Later that afternoon Santa stopped by on the Toys for Tots Operation Toy Train, and the children were thrilled to meet him!
