Lyons Township High School has
established a direct link to the North Pole via the computer. Children, aged
kindergarten through third grade, are invited to South Campus to write letters
to Santa on Discovery Center computers and receive an immediate response from
the North Pole!
Night Christmas Around the World is scheduled for Tuesday, December 10,
South Campus Discovery Center and surrounding classrooms. Participants and
their families may drop in anytime between 4-7p.m. There is no admission
charge, but in the spirit of the season, a donation of one non-perishable food
item is requested. All food will be donated to a local food pantry.
Write Night will
include a story room, coloring room, face-painting room, and cookie decorating
room, staffed by LT elves. Children get their pictures taken with LT’s mascots,
Noil and Nessie, and create a personalized holiday card on the computer. They
can also record a holiday message that will be heard on WLTL radio. LT students provide
musical and magical entertainment, while other LT student volunteers accompany
each child, one-on-one, through all the activities.
Those interested in attending are asked to register through December 6 online
at www.lths.net/HolidayWriteNight , or call
either 708-579-7434 or 708-579-7436, or email Dorothy Cochran at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mary Ann Gecan at email@example.com.
This Holiday Write Night is designed to provide a community service activity
where nearly 500 high school students interact with elementary/early childhood
children. It is hosted by the LTHS Discovery Center Staff.
