Tree Lighting

November 8, 2019

Presque Isle High School

Presque Isle High School art teacher Ellyn Whitten-Smith’s Sculpture I students completed 24 ornaments that will be sent to Washington DC for the annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony that will take place. The ornaments represent Maine and specifically Aroostook County. Pretty exciting! Congrats students of course Ellyn!

The kids made ornaments representing their ideas of Maine, which included: people and places: Stephen King, lighthouses, Mt. Katahdin; wildlife – puffins, junebugs, chickadees, moose, brooktrout, wildcats, pinecones, bees, snow; past-times: camping, and ice fishing;  agriculture: farms, fiddleheads, blueberries, broccoli, and potatoes, as well as old trucks and trees, Balloon Fests, the iconic LLBean boot, Moxie, and whoopie pies. Ellyn is pretty darn proud!
