This weekend,  the GHS Interact Club hosted its annual Holiday Party at Gloucester’s Pathways for Children preschool. 

This year, 80 parents and an estimated 120 children attended the event. The party included holiday crafts, such as popsicle stick picture frames, painted ornaments, and cookie decorating. The party also featured a face painting station, and coloring pages and puzzles. 

The North Pole’s own Santa Claus also made an appearance towards the end of the party. This was no surprise, as reindeer had been spotted in Gloucester throughout the day. 

“I think that the event was a big success this year, it ran very smoothly as compared to years past. I think that was due to a more experienced club and great advisors,” said Interact Club Co-President Gracianna O’Toole. 

Michael Perreault GHS social studies teacher and Interact Club Advisor thought the children enjoyed the event, and was thankful to those who contributed to the success. 

“I thought it went really well, the kids seemed to enjoy themselves,” said Perreault. “We are thankful for the donations of The Open Door for supplying all the food for the event.” 

The Interact Club holds meetings every Wednesday directly after school in room 2401.
