The stockings were made by a combination of the school’s  “WE Team” led by grade 5 and 6 teacher Mrs. Leisha Huber and Mrs. Sue Weiss the Educational Assistant, along with  the “Faith in Action Team” co-ordinated by Special Education Teacher Ms. LeeAnn Baker.  Librarian Technician,  Ms. Carol Lance also helped the students in sewing and decorating the stockings.

The school had told Twin Oaks Activity Director Katie Kemp what they were planning on doing and she in turn gave the school the first names of the residents along with their likes.  So each stocking held items that the residents could relate to and enjoy.  The school community donated all of the gifts for the residents.
