Community-spirited business owners donated Christmas trees for the annual Pine Strawberry School Christmas Tree Auction fund-raiser held at the school Dec. 2. Each class decorated a tree in themes chosen by the students, which were auctioned off to raise funds for school supplies and field trips. Some of the creative themes chosen were turtles, cancer awareness, support the troops, crystals, recycle, old-fashioned Christmas, Toy Story, Nutcracker, Hawaiian and icicles.

Take time to smell the Christmas trees

On Dec. 2, the Pine-Strawberry School had its Christmas tree auction with trees decorated by each class. The decorating themes chosen by the students ranged from supporting the troops to breast cancer, recycling and “The Nutcracker.” Auctioneer, Dean Peterson, did a fantastic job for the third year, and was assisted by student council members. The Christmas trees as well as cards and ornaments created by students brought in $2,360 to help students with classroom supplies and field trips. The school is grateful to the community for supporting the auction for the past 10 years.
