A lot of us already have our Christmas decorations up, even though it’s quite a task.
Well, one Kuna school decided to step it up and decorate the entire town.
“We're holding signs up for “Operation Decoration”, said Brandon Moe, Reed Elementary, 6th grader.
Reed Elementary students had an assignment today.
“This is operation decoration. Last year our kids decided for their community service project that they wanted to decorate Kuna,” said Sari Stewart, Reed Elementary, 6th grade teacher.
An assignment the kids thought of all on their own.
“And we are thanking our sponsors, thank you Craft Warehouse,” said Moe.
In this quant Idaho town of 15 thousand people, it’s making a big difference.
“So, we got some of our inspiration from the Nampa and Caldwell areas that decorate their main streets and city, so we decided to do it for our small town in Kuna,” said Stewart.
“We're going to put some lights in the trees,” said Stewart.
“People are hanging garland right there,” said Moe.
“Usually some of the vendors do some of their store fronts, and we put up a sign on the Main Street, but we wanted to make it a little more grand,” said Stewart.
They started at the east entrance of town, welcoming motorists and thanking them
The students say getting involved has been awesome.
“Because it's fun. And it's helpful to the town to look good for the holidays,” said Moe.
The students really got into it.
“And then there's kids holding signs trying to inspire homeowners to decorate their own homes to make our town look beautiful for the holidays,” said Stewart.
Beautiful is right. Think about that the next time you drive through town.
“Seasons greetings,” said Moe.
