A winter tradition continued as the kindergarten students at North Babylon’s William E. DeLuca Jr. Elementary School participated in the annual reading of Chris Van Allsburg’s “The Polar Express.”

“I am your conductor and today I am going to take you on a trip to the North Pole,” said Superintendent of Schools Patricia Godek. Dressed as the conductor from the novel, with Principal Norann McManus dressed as Mrs. Claus, Mrs. Godek read the story aloud as the kindergartners gathered together in their comfiest bathrobes.

After the story and a surprise visit from Santa Claus, the students worked with their parents to make gingerbread houses. Using milk cartons as a base, they created their houses using their imagination, plenty of icing and candy.

Afterwards, the students returned to class, where they discussed the plot, characters and setting of “The Polar Express” as part of the stories domain they’re currently studying.
