St. John’s spirit of Christmas

Students in Suzanne Stegemoller’s second grade class at St. John Catholic Church are delivering boxes of goodies to area elderly as part of a class project on Christmastime traditions.
The custom of making gifts to persons in need has long been a national holiday in England, celebrated the day after Christmas, Dec. 26.
The boxes Ennis students will be distributing to local nursing centers will be filled with candy.
Each student created and filled his or her own box and made Christmas cards to go with them.
Stegemoller’s class is also participating in decorating holday cards for recovering soldiers at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.
“The students hope the soldiers know we pray for their recovery and realize what a great sacrifice they are making for our freedom,” said Stegemoller.
St. John second graders joining in the projects are Heather Santos, Alyssa Pool, Conner Rejcek, Ryan Ozymy, Ulises Contreras, A.J. Mendez, Rachel Rychlik, Faith Doblado, Hannah Kriska, Devin Gilmore and Brennan Harrison.
