Auntie Claus

Resource teachers pose as Santa's Helpers
including  PE teacher Wes Timmons as dear ol' Santa!
Susan Phillips as Auntie Claus
Another Chets Creek traditions is that Auntie Claus (our Principal, Susan Phillips) reads to every single student on the last day before the holiday. In a school of over 1200 that's a pretty big deal! She brings each grade level to the Media Center at a time certain and dressed in her somewhat bizarre "Auntie Claus" outfit, she reads an age appropriate book to each grade level. Of course, for first graders she reads Auntie Claus, a previous book-of-the-month. Then, because she is in charge of the world, she orders milk and cookies for every good little girl and boy - which is served by the Resource Team dressed as elves and Santa's helpers! What an incredible gift to the children of Chets Creek and to the teachers on this last, somewhat crazy day!
