WES Welcomes Huge Gingerbread Man

First-grade teacher Debbie Alfonso knows how to spice it up during the holidays at Wellington Elementary School. Her class had the opportunity to create a larger-than-life-size gingerbread man. It took three days for the children to mix, cut to size (nine parts), bake and decorate the gingerbread man. They worked so hard on it and enjoyed reading “The Gingerbread Man” story. This is a tradition that Alfonso has been doing for 14 years. Her students will never forget this experience, and of course, the best part was eating it. Shown above is teacher Debbie Alfonso and her class with the life-size gingerbread man.
