Crystal Lake Elementary – Festival of Trees – Habitat for Humanity


Benzie County Central Board of Education set a goal for each school in the District to find a way to give back to our community since the community has given so much to us. Crystal Lake Elementary has selected the Festival of Trees as their community service project. The Festival of Trees is an annual event that benefits the Habitat for Humanity of Benzie County. Crystal Lake Elementary students will create unique ornaments that connect to social studies units of study and these ornaments will adorn decorated trees that will be auctioned off the weekend after Thanksgiving this year. Please check out the amazing artists of Crystal Lake Elementary and help support our local Habitat for Humanity at the Festival of Trees held at the Benzonia Historical Museum!
