Rockwood School District had a very special visitor Dec. 20, the last day before holiday break.
Bartholomew the Elf visited students at all three Rockwood Early Childhood centers – Clarkson Valley, Eureka and Vandover. He also greeted Rockwood staff members in the Administrative Annex. Bartholomew said he was doing some advance work from the North Pole before a big travel project he is involved in every year at this time. Bartholomew said his boss has not given him permission to discuss details of that annual travel project.
The elf said he was here to greet Rockwood students and acknowledge staff members' roles in the district.
"Word at the North Pole is that Rockwood is a good place to be," said Bartholomew. "I know that would not be true without the dedication and hard work of the people who work here."
