“I’m so happy!” one Seymour kindergartener squealed in excitement.
At the 25th annual Carrier holiday party, kindergarteners from Seymour Dual Language Academy enjoyed a performance by Doug Rougeux of Bubble Mania, holiday music, visits from a reindeer and snowman and more.
“I got a baby doll!”
“I got a ninja turtle”
Across the room, as students visited with Santa, they each left carrying a gift, opening everything from play tents to remote control cars to train sets, blocks, dolls and more.
In the company’s 25th year hosting the event, organizers said the goal is purely to give the Seymour students a special celebration. Lou Anne Mann, Senior Representative for Community Affairs, has been planning the event for the 20 years she has worked at Carrier.
“The best part is knowing what we will see in the children’s reactions on the day of the party,” she explained. “The excitement on the kids’ faces makes it all so worth it!”
Seymour Principal Rria Cruz-Soto said that the day signified more than just a holiday celebration because of the ongoing support of Carrier staff throughout the years.
“Our partnership with Carrier has helped Seymour students in so many ways,” she explained. “From providing school supplies to helping us clean up our rain garden to planning this holiday party and so much more, the staff at Carrier have helped engage our students and encourage them to get back and focus on their academics.”
