For the last several years, the OSD135 art department has participated in the Village of Orland Park's Community Tree Trim. Community organizations from around Orland Park adopt a tree for the event, and they come together one day in December to decorate their tree in Centennial Park.
The District 135 art teachers (pictured below) had their students work on beautiful ornaments in class in the weeks before the event. The teachers collected the ornaments and brought them to the Community Tree Trim, where students then decorated the tree. In addition to decking the halls, residents had the opportunity to ice skate, drink hot cocoa and get cozy in the warming house.
Staff and students alike enjoy this festive event each year.
