For these Mascoma Valley Regional High School art students, October is all about Christmas
It's a tight time frame, he said on Friday. He received the clear orb ornaments at the end of September and the finished ornaments need to go out by the end of October, he said.
But only two dozen ornaments can be sent and Morse has told the students he will choose to send the ones that best represent New Hampshire.
Many students, such as seniors Caitlyn Yoder and Justin Marsh, have gone beyond just making one ornament and are now adding to other ornaments.
"I've had English teachers give me flash cards with students' ideas on them," he said.
Known by his students for being a joker, Morse said at first his students didn't believe him when he brought them the project.
Once they realized he was on the level, they enthusiastically joined the project, which is taking up most art classes and the weekly art club meeting, most likely right up until the last minute when the ornaments have to be shipped to D.C., Morse said.
"While they've been making ornaments there have been lots of spirited discussions. … Because the government is closed," Morse said. "And I'm trying to keep the momentum going with it being a great honor. …I've assured them that will all be cleared up by Christmas time."
