For the month of November, Darien Elementary School reached its goal of collecting 5,000 box tops.
To celebrate the hard work, the Darien PTO hosted a “Polar Express” reading on Friday December 13th.
Staff and students dressed in their pajamas and made their way to the gym where they boarded the Darien Polar Express.
Students handed over their golden ticket to our very own conductor, Principal Nancy Resch.
Once boarded, students were given popcorn and chocolate milk to snack on as they listened to the story of the Polar Express.
As the celebration came to a close, Conductor Resch talked to the students about the importance of believing. As the children exited the celebration, each child was given a bell from Santa’s sleigh that read “I believe.”
