Jessica Hill donned an elf cap.

It was held to support the Riley Gift giving project.

For a voluntary contribution of a quarter, students were given the privilege of wearing Santa hats, reindeer antlers or a fun winter hat for the day.

The children loved hat day and it created a very festive spirit in the building.

Most importantly, $95 was raised which was used to purchase food items for the gift giving project.
