SHOREWOOD – Each grade level had its own holiday literary tree at Troy Hofer Elementary School’s annual Home for the Holidays event earlier this month, and they were decorated with themes of books the classes had read.

Students also sang holiday songs for their families at the event, and Santa Clause and Mrs. Clause made appearances, too. Guests were welcomed by fourth grade Student Council leaders.

Throughout the evening, Hofer teachers read holiday books to students and parents, and children got the opportunity to purchase books and trinkets at a book fair, profits from which will go to the school’s classroom libraries.

Liquid refreshments served included melted snowman (water) and “Hofer Ho Ho Ho hot chocolate.”
