Santa visited the Children’s Education Center of the Islands Dec. 17. The surprise stopover was part of a Holiday Concert that dates to the school’s founding in 1974. The youngsters performed a musical revue for their families and the school’s staff prior to Santa’s morning arrival. Food and holiday spirit were also shared in the celebration.
