The students worked all fall with art teacher, Gina Barber, to create decorations for a tree at the Knights of Columbus Museum in New Haven, CT. This annual program is a favorite of everyone at Saint Catherine Academy. The theme this year is crèches from Germany. The students worked with Miss Darlene, Sr. Maureen, Mary Claus, volunteer in our art class and Gina to create different ornaments that would have been part of a traditional Christmas Tree in Germany.

Garland of gingerbread men and a tree topper added the finishing touches.

The volunteers at the Museum treated the students and staff to a morning of Christmas activities highlighted by hot chocolate and donuts. The Museum is open to the public free of charge and the Christmas tree display and Crèches will be at the Museum until Feb. 1st.
