Each month Mr. and Mrs. Hayden come to visit the West Forest second graders and do a holiday craft. This month Mrs. Hayden arrived with a nice homemade winter scarf for each child. She crocheted 13 different scarves so each child would have their own. She let each child choose the color he-she wanted. The kids were so appreciative and thankful.
Miss Blair’s Senior High Writing Class at West Forest High School and Mr. Hale’s Fourth Grade at West Forest Elementary School met during the two short weeks surrounding Thanksgiving vacation to create a Christmas story. Each student in Mr. Hale’s class was paired with a senior high buddy.
The fourth graders mapped out a graphic organizer about their best Christmas present from the past. Taking the graphic organizer, the elementary and senior high students students wrote four paragraphs together about that perfect present. The rough draft was rewritten on green paper to make their final draft. When the story was completed, each team of two wrapped an empty box with Christmas paper. The story was glued on the front of the present.
The wrapped boxes are on display beside the school office for everyone to enjoy. All of these students and teachers wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
