Covert Avenue School’s kindergarten classes recently celebrated the holiday season by making gingerbread houses.

After reading gingerbread-themed books, such as “The Gingerbread Girl,” “Gingerbread Friends,” “The Gingerbread Man” and “The Gingerbread Baby,” the students created their own gingerbread houses. Using milk cartons and graham crackers to create the house, the students decorated their structures with frosting, candy and marshmallows. Family members were invited to attend to help the students make and decorate their houses.
