MAMS Chosen As Artists for PA Tree at White House

MS White House BANN

Middletown Area Middle School students had the honor of creating ornaments for the 2018 Pennsylvania State tree in the President’s Park at the White House. The National Christmas tree is surrounded by 56 smaller trees, each representing a state or territory. For the 2018 trees, one school from each state was selected to decorate their state’s tree. Mrs. Stacey Miller, MAMS Art teacher, was very honored when she was informed that Middletown Area Middle School had been selected to represent Pennsylvania. Mrs. Miller had her 8th grade students work on the ornaments throughout the fall months. Each ornament was decorated with something that was signature to Pennsylvania such as, the Liberty Bell, Hershey’s Chocolate, covered bridges, the Nittany Lions, the Capitol, farming, and the state flower, the Mountain Laurel. The tree lighting ceremony was held on Wednesday, November 28, 2018. The President’s Park is a National Park which is free to the public. MASD families who have the opportunity to visit the park to view the trees are encouraged to take photos of their family in front of the PA tree and submit them to so they can be shared on our social media sites.
