As part of a longstanding tradition, the James Caldwell High School Student Council donated gifts to Harmony House Early Learning Center the week before Christmas. The students organized a school-wide gift drive, where each homeroom collected money to purchase a gift for the children at HHELC. The children and teens spent the morning in their classrooms singing Christmas carols, creating pictures with glitter and tissue paper and playing dress up.
Kris Schneider, 17, serves as Student Council Secretary and visited Harmony House Early Learning Center for his third year. “It’s just a great experience to interact with the children,” he said. In the weeks leading up to the visit, Schneider said that the entire school, located in West Caldwell, gets excited to participate. “Everyone gets so enthusiastic,” he said.
