HUNTINGTON - Altizer Elementary School students decorated and ate cookies with Santa Claus on Friday evening at the school while practicing basic math skills.

Students were given pretend money to spend on decorations for their cookies so they could practice budgeting skills. Hot chocolate was also served to the students as they worked on other math problems, including fractions.

The students’ families attended the event with the children.
