Early morning on Friday, December 21, the Sparkz Girls Club had their St. Lucy Party.  We were surprised when St. Lucy (Courtney Schwartz) woke us up before school.  When we got everybody we went to the Prigge’s house for breakfast and a gift exchange.  Then we went to school.  The party was awesome! The afternoon of December 21, the Sparkz Girls Club went Christmas caroling around Cottonwood and stopped at a few special places and gave presents.  Then we went back to the PFFP building and had hot chocolate and peanut butter bars.  While we were there we played games.  We had a lot of fun doing these things!  If you want to join The Sparkz Girls Club call Tara Duclos or Julie Schumacher.
