The first grade students in Mrs. Newton’s class at Crossing have been sharing their holiday traditions. They write about what their families do at the holidays and then decorate a stocking and share with the class. It is an amazing opportunity for children to learn about other families and cultures. They get to see similarities and differences with their classmates. In Hilliard, our diversity is one of our greatest strengths. Mrs. Newton has done this lesson with students for the past 20 years, and she has learned some new traditions along the way that she has shared with her own family.
