It was a cold and windy spot but students, staff, parents, bus drivers and anyone passing the Eisenhower High School on Friday, Dec. 23, were treated to our own live Elf on the Shelf as part of the SADD Holiday Theme of events for the week. All the horn honking, waving and shouts of Merry Christmas from 7 to 8 a.m. set a great mood for the final day before break. It was the talk of the school from Kindergarten through 12th grade for the rest of the day.
