Holiday cheer is for spreading and that’s why students from Bayville Elementary School are ensuring that those who may not have much to cheer about feel the holiday spirit. Carolyn Morales’ second-grade class at Bayville Primary School joined forces with Maureen Pederson’s fourth-grade class at Bayville Intermediate School to create handmade cards for patients at Cohen Children’s Medical Center. With the help of pianist and orchestra teacher Christine Hujber, the group also sang holiday carols and created a video of the songs.
“It was heartwarming to see the students truly get into the real meaning of the holidays,” Mrs. Pederson said.
Mrs. Morales agreed and added that the efforts of all the children will make a difference for those less fortunate this holiday season. “Both classes worked together quite well to create beautiful cards and a video that will touch the hearts of many young children,” she said.
