IRONWOOD - Students at Luther L. Wright School had a busy day Friday, before heading out for Christmas vacation.

Throughout the morning, students at Sleight Elementary (kindergarten through second grade at LLW) were treated to a concert by Accent, received a visit from Santa and held classroom parties.

The day kicked off with the annual Student of the Month celebration in the elementary gym, followed by a drawing for an iPad mini for students who participated in the summer education program. Second-grader Jaye Foley received the prize.

After the ceremony, high school students in Accent performed a variety of Christmas carols and then ended with a dance party, grabbing students from the audience and dancing around the gymnasium.

Sophomore Ethan Puisto told the elementary students this was Accent's "favorite concert of the year," and spoke about his favorite things about Christmas. A few students were invited to tell their favorite things about Christmas, which included presents and spending time with family

Afterward, students received visits from Santa in their classrooms. Each student was able to visit with Santa and received a book, courtesy of the PTO.

"It was really cool to have the students receive books," first grade teacher Dawn Wolfe said. "The PTO did a great job with that."

Students will be out of school until Jan. 5.
