MARGATE — Giggles were abundant Dec. 22 as students at the William H. Ross School celebrated their Holiday Jamboree on the last day of classes before winter break.

Each class did something special as students moved from their regular classrooms to a holiday activity that was both educational and fun, Principal Michelle CarneyRay-Yoder said.

In the library, teacher Amy Hughes read stories by a false fireplace she brought in to make it feel like Christmas. With the lights turned low, students relaxed and listened to holiday stories before moving on to the next activity.

In the art room, students made snowman measuring sticks they will use to measure the next snowfall.

But the most fun was had in the science classroom, where first- through third-graders made their own snow from shaving cream and baking soda. Hands got messy, snowballs were formed, and some children even took their snowballs home to show their parents.
