The last week before Christmas is always a magical time. Last minute holiday shoppers rush to get last minute specials; families begin preparing in earnest for get-togethers with food and fun; and area schools wind down Christmas concerts and plays and focus on celebrating in classrooms and assemblies.

This was certainly the case recently with Mansfield City Schools. Here are links to stories on the district webpage that talk about holiday events which have taken place over the last several days. Click on any title for the full story.
