On Dec. 2 the Parents’ Association held the annual Holiday Gift Making Fair where lower-school students made a variety of holiday crafts in the gym. Lower schoolers traveled to eight craft stations run by parent and high-school student volunteers. Students made bookmarks, potpourri, ornaments, greeting cards and more while enjoying cookies and crackers as snacks.
