The Christmas Selfie Contest

On Thursday, December 13, we visited St. Boniface’s Kindergarten class. The Christmas Selfie Contest was read to the class. The story is about Santa holding a Christmas selfie competition, and one particular elf is determined to win! But what will he do when things don’t go to plan? After the story, the class made elves.

If you want to know what happens in the story, stop by the library and check out the book.
