“Thanks to Our Secret Santas!
For a variety of reasons, the holiday season can be a difficult time for many of those in our community. Financial hardship, distance from loved ones and the stress of winter travel can all conspire to take a little of the merry out of Christmas. Fortunately, for a little town such as ours, we have the highest concentration of Santas that I have ever seen! For years now, these businesses, church groups and ordinary citizens have donated money, food and clothing to make the season a little brighter for many of our students – and the effort keeps getting bigger. Employees of Idaho Power again donated 15, $75.00 gift certificates for us to distribute with the stipulation that each child use part of that money to buy a gift for someone else. Bruneel Tire donated dozens of winter coats and several local churches made sure that families have enough food to put on their tables. Our community lead Toys for Tots program is once again going to make the little ones happy come Christmas morning. Perhaps most meaningful of all are the people here in town who yearly take up a collection – this year nearly one thousand dollars – with the one request that it directly benefit our students. They are modeling for all of us what it means to be part of a community.
Not surprisingly, most of these generous souls wish to remain anonymous and simply take comfort in the fact that they are helping to perpetuate the true spirit of Christmas. Nevertheless, all of us here at Basin want you to know how profoundly grateful we are for your selflessness and the joy it brings our students and their families.

In October, the fourth and fifth grade classes had the opportunity to visit the Idaho State Capitol Building. While they were there, they got to tour the Senate Floor, the Governor’s office, and the treasury. Additionally, they were able to see the many new improvements that were made during the remodel. The following week, they had the privilege of inviting Senator Tim Corder to our school. He spoke to the fourth and fifth grade classes about his job as a senator and how he makes a difference for all of us here at Basin Elementary.
