Theme School students decorate BOE Christmas tree

Colt Tucker, a kindergarten student at the Newton County Theme School, reaches for the perfect branch to place a reindeer ornament on the Christmas tree at the Newton County Board of Education building Tuesday. Fourth-grader Ritavian Benton, back left, and first-grader Anthony Neil, back right, also pitch in to help. Each year, elementary students from around the school district create special tree ornaments to decorate the Newton County Board of Education’s Christmas Tree, and each year, students from nearby Newton County Theme School at Ficquett stop by the BOE office to help decorate the tree.
