Jim has been cutting out these ornaments for the students at Holy Family School for 18 years. It has become a tradition and "right of passage" at the school to decorate these ornaments.
The current 3rd grade class finished decorating their ornaments Today!
Many of the former students who are in High School and College still have their ornaments and display them every Christmas Season!
