Prior to Thanksgiving break, upper school students at New Testament Christian School in Norton wanted to show their appreciation for others. Together, the class baked cookies for to be delivered to employees in the Town of Norton.
The sweet smell of the holidays wafted down the halls of the small Christian school as brownies and various flavors of cookies baked in the school cafeteria.
“The students enjoyed doing something different during the school day and worked hard mixing the dough and even cleaning up, all while having a few laughs along the way,” said upper school academic enhancement instructor Amy Rogers. “Even to boys got involved. Freshman Kyle Perry had an 'Edward Scissorhand' approach to shaping the cookies with two spoons. The special treat was licking the bowls as well as trying out some of the baked goods.”
Three students ventured out with Rogers to deliver platters to the Norton Police Station, Fire Station and Town Hall.
“The surprise and appreciation received from those accepting the platters were priceless. What a great feeling to give to others without expectation” Rogers said.
The students thanked the employees for their hard work and wished them a Happy Thanksgiving.
