Beeville ISD students got a chance to tour the Christmas Tree Forest at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School this week. The public is invited to come out also.

With oohs and ahhs, the children toured the Thomas Jefferson Elementary Christmas Tree Forest.

Some of the trees were decorated with store-bought ornaments while others were artfully arranged with child-crafted decorations, including animals of all shapes, sizes, stripes and spots.

Martha Stovall, who coordinated the Christmas Tree Forest, said this year’s theme for the forest was “Wild About Christmas,” which coincides with the school’s theme of “Wild About TJES.”

Stovall says that everyone is invited to come out and see the hard work put in by the children but had better hurry. It comes down Dec. 16.

Debbie Fulton, a consultant at TJES, said, “The forest is held each year as part of the school’s Character Education program, knowing that not all of the children will have a Christmas tree at home.

“Many thanks to all the TJES assistants, custodians, parents, teachers and students who helped to make this year’s forest the wildest ever.”
