Something Sweet at Great Village School
Great Village students had the opportunity to build a gingerbread house from scratch. This year, students made their gingerbread houses in Peace Groups (each Peace Group has students from each of the classrooms). Having older and more experienced students available to help the younger students made constructing and decorating the gingerbread houses fun and easy. It takes many volunteers to make this event the success it is each year, both behind the scenes (e.x. baking gingerbread pieces, making icing, and purchasing candy decorations) and on construction day. A special thank you is extended to Mandi MacRae for her leadership for this activity. The best part is, that students take the gingerbread houses home following the Christmas concert.
