Spreading joy while going 'green'

ORANGE — Mrs. Daphne McIntire, Science Teacher at St. Mary Catholic School, has brilliant recycling ideas. She instructed her 7th and 8th Grade Science Elective students to take large cans from the cafeteria and make baskets representing a Jesse Tree. The students painted the cans green, cut holes on each side, put ribbon through the holes for handles and painted “Joy” on the cans. The Jesse Tree baskets were given to PreK3 and 1st Grade students to put goodies in to take home after their Christmas parties at school on Thursday. The younger students were so excited. Pictured are some of the baskets stacked in Ms. Regan Slovak’s 1st Grade classroom.
