The Boxberry School in Harrison celebrated December 2018’s solstice by creating edible decorations for their “solstice tree.” Students smeared peanut butter on pine cones and rolled them in bird seed, made cranberry garland and pomanders, and hung dried orange slices for wildlife to enjoy. Students learned about a solstice tree from Eve Bunting’s picture book, “Night Tree.” From left are Alison Graves, teacher Cassandra Harmon, Quinlan Friel, Sophia Berry, Basil Lee, Mae Fahey, teacher Deanna Fahey, Cadence Lee, Levi Cannon, Aemelia Graves and Maesa Rossignol Kane.
