Students in Christa McAuliffe Academy’s Crochet Club gave gifts for others to keep warm. The Crochet Club, made up of 6th graders Judy Nguyen, Asia Dawson, Aubree Dawson, Mallory Floyd, and Penelope Johnson started to learn how to crochet in September. Since that time, they have created more than 30 scarves. The students, along with sponsor Stephanie Knutson, passed out the scarves to others at the Salvation Army. The scarves they were not able to pass out were placed around various statues downtown with notes attached telling the public they are welcome to take a scarf as a gift if they are cold. 

“So many lessons were learned from this project,” said Knutson.

“It was fun to learn how to crochet, but knowing that people are happy to receive something I created makes me feel happy and successful,” said Nguyen.
