School Librarian Paula Erickson and eight students recycled old Time magazines. The trees were made on Thursday, Dec. 12 during Star Time.

Make and take magazine Christmas trees turned out great,” Erickson said in a Tweet on Dec. 13.

On the flyer used to advertise the event, it was called the December Make and Take Project. Senior Gabby Boutte first saw the paper Christmas trees in class and thought they were cute.

“They are just something for before Christmas, something to involve reading,” Boutte said.

The idea was to find a way to reuse the old reading material in a fun, festive way. Senior Scott Yates was invited to the project by a friend.

“They’re pretty cool,” Yates said.

The Make and Take Project was limited to the first 20 students who signed up. Senior Sam Jesse appreciates how environmentally friendly the trees are.

“I think it’s very creative instead of just throwing the magazines away,” Jesse said.

Students constructed the magazine trees in the library media center and then painted them in the new courtyard area outside the east PAC entrance.
