Students at Bruce Elementary School received a surprise visit recently from Saint Nicholas. Before classes started, the entire school was treated to a few musical selections by band students. Then, Principal Trealla Epps read the students The Legend of Saint Nicholas. Moments later, St. Nick surprised the students in the cafeteria, and Pre-K through second-grade students received backpacks full of toys, donated by Volunteer Houston.

“We are extremely thankful for Volunteer Houston’s generosity,” Epps said. “Because of their kind act, many of our students will have a brighter Christmas.”

With the holiday season in full swing, many schools are celebrating with Christmas pageants and programs, musical tributes, toy and food drives, winter festivals, and much more.

Photos from these events are pouring in and are featured in a photo gallery here. If you would like to highlight a holiday event from your school, please submit photos and a short description to
