Students at Seven Stars Celebrate The Holiday Season With Festive Activities
Seven Stars, a residential treatment center and assessment center for teens ages 13-17 who struggle with neurodevelopmental issues, is excited to kick off the holiday season with a variety of festive activities on campus and within the local community. “We’ve put up our holiday tree and students are working on their own crafty decorations to hang,” says Founder and Executive Clinical Director Dr. Gordon Day. “Some of these crafts include specially carved snowflakes and holiday ornaments that will be gifted to parents. Since everyone loves a cool science experiment, we will be making our very own version of snow.”
During the first night of Hanukkah, students will be playing games with dreidels and snacking on latkes, also known as potato pancakes for a special Jewish tradition. To celebrate the last day of Hanukkah, students will get to enjoy a sufganiyot, otherwise known as a jelly doughnut.
On December 12th, students will be celebrating National Gingerbread House day by building and decorating gingerbread houses. Following that, students will take part in a holiday light tour. “Students will load up in the vans and take a trip around the town to look at the lights and sip on hot chocolate,” says Dr. Day. “On Christmas Eve, everyone will gather for pizza and enjoy a Christmas-themed movie. We will end the night together by reading ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’. On Christmas day, the kiddos will wake up and enjoy Christmas tree pancakes and sausage. To really capture the holiday vibes, they will open gifts in front of the Netflix fire.”
Students will wrap up the holiday season with New Year’s Eve celebrations.
“We’re celebrating the ending to a year like no other with a Just Dance tournament, game night, and special treats,” comments Dr. Day. “There is much in store for our kiddos at Seven Stars. We are eager to welcome the holiday season!”
