CCNS (Crescenta-Cañada Cooperative Nursery School) held its annual Christmas program on Wednesday, Dec. 22 within the Lutheran Church in the Foothills. Both the Busy Bears (4 year olds) and Darling Ducks (3 year olds) took part, learning the true meaning of Christmas through their participation in a Christmas program that was complete with a surprise visit from Santa.

The celebration began with the story of Jesus told by
Pastor Bruce Johnson followed by the children singing traditional holiday favorites.
All eyes turned to the door when Santa suddenly appeared to pass out books to each

“Christmas is a very special time of the year,” said CCNS teacher Nita Imm. “Not only do we teach the story of Jesus’
birth and Christmas spirit, we also teach very important lessons about giving and receiving.”
