Crossing Guard Appreciation

Our Crossing Guards, Betty and Stephanie, were honored last week as part of Crossing Guard Appreciation Week! Thank you for all you do! Photo below:

 

Ms. Avalyn Mathis

Avalyn grew up in upstate New York, but moved to DC to study fine art at Georgetown University. Since completing her BA she has been freelancing and teaching art privately to groups and individuals. She loves exploring new mediums and lately has been immersing herself in fiber arts; weaving, macramé and sewing. When she’s not creating and crafting at home in Ditmas Park, she likes to get out of the city to hike and go camping.

Breakfast with Santa

Breakfast with Santa is one of our most popular annual events: so popular, in fact, that it sells out on the first day almost every year!

Parents from each homeroom prepare themed baskets full of all kinds of gifts: from Legos, American Girl dolls, Gourmet foods and more. In the days leading up to the event, students buy raffle tickets for a chance to take home each of the basket.

On the event itself, more than 400 parents, students and siblings converge on the Saint Saviour High School Gym, which is transformed by our wonderful Parent Association volunteers to a winter wonderland. Breakfast is served and students get a chance to hand-deliver their letters to Santa and get a gift from Santa’s helpers.

Finally at the end of the event, Parent Association volunteers draw the winners of each basket, as well as a 50/50 raffle.
