Every year in mid-December, the students at Sue Creech Elementary participate in Gingerbread Day festivities during their “specials” time. Emily Silva, a Creech Mom, chairs the annual event.
Parents and the Creech PTA donate supplies such as graham crackers, peppermint sticks, gumdrops, skittles and more, and a virtual army of teachers and parent/family volunteers assist the children (more than 850 students enrolled) in making their own individual Gingerbread Houses to take home. Creech Art Instructor Natalie Sansom kicks off each grade’s production with an instructional overview for the students that combines art and architecture. Then, the organized ensues, and the entire school is filled with the pleasant aroma of goodies event after the students gather up their projects to take home.
