11/9/2017 - CHS prepares a Christmas Tree for the Wadsworth Atheneum

In embracing collaboration, community, critical thinking, creativity, citizenship and compassion, Canton Public Schools Library Media Center faculty and staff are submitting a decorated tree to the Wadsworth Atheneum's Festival of Trees and Traditions, to be held from December 1 through December 10 in Hartford. 

The theme is "Canton Kids Love Reading" and the hand-made decorations feature favorite books read by students in all four schools.  This wonderful event now in its 44th year, brings thousands of visitors to the museum.  Proceeds from the sales of the trees provide financial support for the Atheneum, and many of the items that are purchased by visitors are given as donations to local shelters and non-profit organizations.  Come and visit!
