Schools in the Arlington ISD take the holidays seriously. There are sing-alongs, orchestra and choir performances, holiday stores, and parties throughout the district. So it’s safe to say Arlington ISD’s Holiday Spirit is unparalleled.
Students at Arlington High helped kick things off last Tuesday with the fifth annual Santa’s Village.
The school’s library was transformed into a winter wonderland complete with a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus for pictures. The purpose of the village is to entertain the children of Arlington High employees and their friends and families.
There were snacks, movies and craft stations for the little ones to get into the holiday spirit. And the stations were manned by students from the Arlington High PALS (Peer Assistance and Leadership) club as well as other members of the AHS student leadership.
