Maple Elementary School Receives Early Christmas Surprise
Maple Elementary School received a special visit from the one and only, Santa Claus.
The man in the red suit will arrived bright and early at Maple Elementary in Fullerton with a trailer-full of
wrapped gifts and food items for each of the school’s 435 students. Beginning at 8:00am in the Multi-
Purpose Room, Santa will took a photo with each of the school’s 16 classrooms and with the assistance of
his helpers, every child was presented with a gift. On site to lend St. Nick a hand was a cast of characters
including, StarKist’s Charlie the Tuna, Cracker Jack’s Sailor Jack and Frito Lay’s Chester Cheetah. These
characters were joined by representatives from the Fullerton School District, Fullerton School District
Trustees Janny Meyer and Hilda Sugarman, and representatives from Albertsons, Vons and Pavilions. The
Southern California grocery chain, which is based in Fullerton, adopted the Title 1 Academic Achieving
School in 2013 and has made sponsoring the Christmas wishes of each student a holiday tradition for their
employees. The school will also enjoyed a catered lunch and every teacher received a gift basket with
product and an Albertsons gift card.
