HERKIMER – When Santa Claus visited the 3- and 4-year-olds that Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES child and family services juniors were teaching on Tuesday, Dec. 20, Santa wasn’t the only one giving out gifts.

In addition to Santa giving each student a book, the students gave Santa a book.

“We want them to learn it’s not just about getting and getting and getting,” child and family services instructor Kim Fragetta said. “It’s a time for them to give and show appreciation as well.”

Fragetta has been working with former Herkimer BOCES criminal justice instructor Richard Congdon to bring Santa Claus to her classroom every year for the past several years.

“He’s always very generous with his time even though it’s a busy time, so we’re thankful for that,” Fragetta said.

Child and family services students and the 3- and 4-year-olds in the nursery school sang a song for Santa, accompanied by Herkimer student Natalie Todd on the flute. By student request, Santa also read the book he received from the students and answered questions about his reindeer and his age.

Although most children cheered with excitement when Santa arrived, the experience also helps children who aren’t as comfortable, Fragetta said.

“Some of them are still fearful, so we like them to see Santa in an environment they feel safe and secure in,” she said.
