The ornament tradition

BY KARLIE HEATHERMAN

Burlington staff and students started a tradition a few years ago that involved decorating the school Christmas tree with handmade ornaments.

Pre-K through 12th grade are invited to decorate one ornament per class. The seventh grade made one that has a COVID theme, which is a great theme for this year. Other ornaments were made out of metal using the plasma cutter, popsicle sticks, class pictures, a giant pine cone and lots of glitter. This is a great way for the classes to have a little fun and get into the spirit of Christmas. All of our classes enjoy this tradition and hope we keep it for a long time.

The ornament made by the 7th grade class for Burlington’s school Christmas tree makes light of the situation this year, listing “Covid”, “Virus” and “Fever” among the classmates.
