Everyone is counting down the days to holiday break – students and teachers alike. To power all of us through the end of the year, we’re bringing you some holiday cheer today. We asked fellow educators, administrators, and Mimio parents to share the holiday traditions that are observed in their schools and classrooms.

Wonderful holiday traditions bring fun, the joy of giving, and the spirit of learning to one and all. Enjoy!
