Saint Nick Rolls into Ashford in a Big Rig (AM)
A very special guest made an early appearance in Ashford on December 17th. Saint Nick himself rolled into Ashford Elementary School to visit students in the special education program. Instead of the usual sleigh pulled by eight reindeer, he came in a big rig truck.
Santa read wish lists and gave presents to boys and girls- every one of them made the "nice list," even if only by a hair.
Teachers say the kids have a better handle on the true meaning of Christmas than a lot of grown-ups. "It's great just to see Christmas through their eyes, says special education teacher Lindsey Andrews. "To see how they react. You can see the Christmas spirit in all of them."
Teachers also took home Wal-Mart gift cards to buy supplies for the second half of the year.
