Once again lots of pancakes, sausages and fruit was served at the annual Elsipogtog School Breakfast with Santa. The big crowd was also entertained by a staff flashmob, as well as some line-dancing. Of course, many pictures were taken with the always jolly, Ol' Saint Nick. On behalf of the teachers and staff, we wish you joy, happiness and peace during the upcoming holidays and in the new year. Merry Christmas.http://www.elsipogtogschool.ca/gallery/holiday-festivities
