Elementary Buddies Help Make Holiday Decorations

Across the district, older elementary students are working with younger elementary students to help them make special holiday projects.

At Eshleman Elementary, Mrs. Detter’s first grade class worked with their buddies from Mrs. Braun’s fifth grade class to make several different holiday crafts. Each student made a beehive Christmas tree candle, glitter pine cone ornament, cinnamon applesauce ornaments, a picture frame, candy canes made from beads, a snowman ornament and a colorful pasta garland.

At Martic Elementary, Mrs. Mulder’s kindergarten class and Mrs. Iddings fifth grade class worked together to make candy canes made from beads, a sparkling, beaded, pipe cleaner star, and an ornament made from paper strips. Lastly, the students could make either a snowman or reindeer bag to hold their creations.
