Spreading holiday cheer

News Staff Report

Students at Rachel Patterson Elementary School have been busy creating ornaments for their Christmas trees. Not only have they been decorating, they’ve been involved in a Christmas tree decorating competition.
Molly Barnett, the Rachel Patterson Leader in Me Leadership Events Action Team leader, coordinated the project. Each classroom was given a theme and created unique ornaments corresponding to their tree’s theme. Trees were donated by Central Farm Supply, Escambia Lawn, the Guthrie Family, Marvin’s and United Bank.
The themes of the trees are
* PreK and kindergarten: Hard Candy Christmas
* First grade: Gingerbread Men
* Second grade: Frosty and Friends
* Third grade: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
* Special Education Department and Head Start: The North Pole
The award-winning trees are shown here.
In next week’s edition of Atmore News, the Facebook Favorite will be featured.
