Over the years she has dressed as a mouse, a train conductor from the Polar Express, and even Cindy Lou Who.

But this holiday season she's bringing the chill.

The principal of Hall Fletcher Elementary School is creating magical moments dressed as a snowman.

Cynthia Sellinger read from the book "What Snowmen Do at Night." Fifth-graders and their first-grade buddies enjoyed cookies and hot chocolate as they listened and read along with the story.

Ms. Sellinger says this is one of her favorite activities that she shares with her students. It's a tradition she hopes to continue through the years.

"I want them to have a magical experience that involves literacy, that involves school, that involves their classmates in a very caring community," she said.

Ms. Sellinger read to the children from 19 different classrooms.

And we want to give a shout out to Ms. Jude, the parent volunteer who made the snowman costume. Nice job!

With 330 students in grades pre-k through 5th grade, you can be sure they went through a lot of cookies and plenty of hot chocolate
