Kids and the holiday season are synonymous. So this week we're highlighting some of the activities the younger set enjoys at this time of year.

Ridge View High School students capped their Winter Days charity drive last week with an assembly that included performances by band, orchestra, drama, chorus and dance groups. Frosty the Snowman even made an appearance. The students also entertained foster children whom they sponsored in the charity drive. Students from Rice Creek Elementary, Kelly Mill Middle School, Summit Parkway and Lake Carolina also attended the assembly.
