Breakfast with Santa This Saturday in Lakewood
P.A.L.S. (Pupil Assisted Learning Services) students at Lakewood High School (LHS) and their coordinator Gay Huggins-Dickey, are sponsoring Breakfast with Santa, Saturday, December 14, 2013, in the LHS Cafeteria, 855 Somerset Avenue, Lakewood, from 8:00 to 11:00 a.m. The cost is $5.00 per breakfast, including pancakes and sausage, fruit, coffee, hot chocolate, tea, or milk.
Purchase tickets at LHS; Clifton Avenue Grade School, 625 Clifton Avenue; the Lakewood Early Child Center, 100 Linden Avenue; the Spruce Street School, 90 Spruce Street; or the Oak Street School, 75 Oak Street. Proceeds from Breakfast with Santa will be used for PALS’ projects.
Santa is expected to arrive at 9:30 a.m. and will take photos with the children. Other activities include face painting, pin the nose on Rudolph, coloring, and other games. Jimmy Givens, a local DJ, is providing music. (http://www.jimmygivens.com).
PALS is an elective class in which the students learn about civic duty, citizenship, responsibility and caring for others – the world outside of their own lives. Huggins-Dickey also teaches the students project management during which they take a project from its beginning and see it through to its end. For example, the students are now focusing on the holiday wish lists for children staying at Dottie’s House, a home for women and their children who have suffered from domestic violence.
Other PALS’ projects have included almost filling a food pantry from a food drive they conducted, and dressing as elves recently for the Lakewood Santa Parade after which they assisted Santa in giving out toys.
Proceeds from Breakfast with Santa will be used for PALS’ projects. For more information call Gay Huggins-Dickey at 732-901-5724.
