Milo Elementary Shares Christmas Around the World

Milo Adventist Elementary School has been studying Christmas in different countries. Each student chose a country and then made display boards which talked about the traditions of that country and brought special items to display.

On Dec. 14, 2009, the elementary school held an open house to share with the community what they learned. They all brought different Christmas foods. There was sushi from Japan; stollen and German spice cookies from Germany; and Russian teacakes from Russia. Karina Bovee brought Venezuelan bread filled with raisins, stipples and olives and Tyler Lambie shared cookies made into the shape of his initials.

The community turned out to share this experience with the students. Sandra Sumerlin, head teacher, was very proud of her students and the work they put into it. All were able to share what they learned.
