Teachers, parents, and students came together to make a total of 27 blankets.

"The PTO board was so proud that with the help of parents, teachers, and students we were able to make so many beautiful blankets for those in need this holiday season." "The Welcome House was thrilled to receive the blankets and appreciated the care that each student took in making them," PTO Vice President Tanya Hayes said.
