Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The entire student body at Piedmont Elementary School in Duluth got "elfed" Friday morning.

Elfing, or leaving a thoughtful surprise gift for someone, took place throughout the month of December at Piedmont.

Students left surprises outside of classroom doors for their peers to promote the importance of giving during the holiday season.

Now, the Parent-Teacher Association decided to get in on the program by elfing the entire student body.

School staff members made bags filled with custom hats and secretly dropped them off in front of each classroom.

"It's part of our elfing theme, each day the elf would pull tricks on the classes, and today was the last day of school so we were able to provide every student with a nice winter hat," said Tim Doyal, the president of the PTA.

Each hat has a child's name and the name of the school.'

Piedmont's new principal Becky Curtis, has created a "giving" initiative at the school.
