“Many families have unique traditions during the holiday season. One tradition that many families celebrate is hiding a pickle ornament in a Christmas tree and giving an extra present to whichever family member finds it first. To celebrate this tradition here at GMS, there are 12 pickles hidden around the school. They are made out of construction paper and they are laminated. They’re hidden pretty well, but if you happen to find one, you may turn it into Mr. Peter in Room 104 at the end of the school day and receive a prize.”
