Students Make Blankets in Honor of Classmates

Posted: Updated:
PETERSTOWN -

Students at one elementary school are taking the holiday spirit to heart this year.

All the students at Peterstown Elementary school in Monroe County are helping make blankets.


 The fleece blankets are being made in honor of two students who are currently battling leukemia.

Once the blankets are complete, they will be donated to several nursing homes in Monroe County- as well as to both hospitals the children are receiving their cancer treatment.
     
Music Teacher, Regina Spencer, it's a chance to teach the children to reach outside themselves for the holidays.

The school will have a breakfast with Santa at eleven at Peterstown Elementary school.
