SOMERSET, NJ - More than 70 Thomas EnergySmart Charter School students kicked off the holiday season Friday night, with crafts and snacks during the TEECS PTO second "Cookies with Santa" celebration.

The students came dressed in their favorite pajamas ready for a night of fun and games. 

Volunteers from the East Millstone firehouse escorted Santa to the school where a small crowd was awaiting his arrival. Local photographer Colleen Rooney helped to memorialize the event with her signature personalized photos.
