Cavs decorate trees of knowledge and good will

KING WILLIAM – To celebrate the holiday season while promoting learning and good will, teachers got creative with their tree decorating projects. Mrs. Connie Plum's history classes decorated a "His-Tree." Each student created an ornament pertaining to history or government. They could create a model of a historical event, diagram of a famous historical place, or profile of a famous person. In addition, students had to submit a paper which described the ornament's physical characteristics, its connection to history or government, and the amount of time spent constructing the ornament.

Mrs. Tracie Fulks' chemistry class decorated a "Chemis-Tree." Each student had to create an ornament which illustrated a chemistry concept. Students' ornaments were judged on quality of construction, creativity, attention to detail, presentation of their work, and a written paper.

The National Honor Society (NHS), under the direction of Mrs. Kimberly Hicks, decorated a "Hat, Mittens, and Scarf Tree." NHS members promoted the warm clothing event and encouraged all students and staff to donate. The items collected were given to Peanut Butter and Jelly, a ministry of Sharon Baptist Church.
