RVAA Elementary Students Share Christmas Cheer

First- and second-grade students at Rogue Valley Adventist Academy in Medford, Ore., had fun making beaded candy canes and bookmarks. Led by their teacher, Michelle Wachter, they then shared these gifts with the nearby Three Fountains retirement community on Dec. 9, 2011.

The students brightened the residents' day with smiles, several songs sung with great enthusiasm, and handmade gifts for all. Residents and students alike shared a fun game of Wheel of Fortune and an exchange of holiday greetings.

This year the students are focusing on how to make a difference in the lives of others and how to make a positive impact on their community.
