City of Sequim seeking student-made ornaments for holiday tree

Home-schooled students and those attending private schools welcome

SEQUIM — All fourth-grade or 9-year-old students in the Sequim School District, including home-schooled students and those attending private schools, are invited to create an ornament to decorate the holiday tree that will be displayed at the Sequim Civic Center, 152 W. Cedar St., from Dec. 3 to January.

The theme for all student-created ornaments is “The Importance of Kindness.”

Any materials are acceptable for the ornaments as long as they are dry. No live entries, candles, batteries or flammable materials are allowed. Ornaments can be no smaller than 2 inches by 2 inches by 2 inches, and no larger than 6 inches by 6 inches by 6 inches.

There are no color restrictions. All ornaments must have a loop — wire, ribbon or cord — so they may be hung easily on the tree.

Students must turn in their ornament and entry form to their teachers by Monday, Nov. 22. Arts Advisory Commission member Maggie Hall Taylor will pick them up from each school at a pre-arranged time.

The holiday tree will be on display and decorated by Friday, Dec. 3. All students will receive a special commemorative card as a “thank you” remembrance for their participation when ornaments are returned in January.

Full participation details and information are available on the City of Sequim’s website at sequimwa.gov/699/Holiday-Tree. Flyers are being distributed through the Sequim School District’s fourth-grade classes, the Sequim Boys & Girls Club and at selected shops in downtown Sequim.

For more information, contact Taylor at 818-414-4437 or [email protected], or marketing coordinator Patsene Dashiell at 360-681-3421 or [email protected].
