Join us for our annual trip on the Polar Express! The PTA has reserved one Metro Car for our group to enjoy this magical experience together. The award-winning book comes to life on this journey to the North Pole and back. All passengers will enjoy hot cocoa and a cookie, served by your personal chefs in each car. Elves will read the story to you on the way to pick up Santa! As Santa visits each car, Elves will lead your family in singing carols and spreading merriment.  As in the story, everyone is encouraged to wear pajamas for the trip…just make sure your pockets don't have any holes!
