Mrs. Smith’s fourth grade class had an extra special Christmas party.  A mom and grandma volunteered to plan a party for the class.  What the students didn’t know is they’d be learning a new skill-quilting!  Students tied a quilt and fleece blankets to give to a family in need this Christmas.  Mrs. Smith said, “The kids really loved this part of it and I think the fact that they knew it was going to someone who needed it, made it that much better.”  Afterwards, they decorated and ate some cookies.  They finished off the party by singing Christmas carols with the Mom and Grandma.  They surprised Mrs. Smith by giving one to her too.  It was a blast and the kids loved it!
