If you have attended elementary schools in the local area, chances are you have probably participated in a favorite Christmas tradition. LaRee Liddiard, elementary school teacher in Nephi, created her own paper patterns of angels, stockings, wreaths, lanterns and other Christmas designs many years ago. Students added the tissue paper and carefully crafted their design. The decorations were then placed on windows around the school. When LaRee retired, she passed on these patterns to her son Dwight Liddiard, principal, who has been carrying on the tradition at different schools for 27 years. East Meadows 5th-grade students recently finished their decorations and the school windows are now adorned with these stained-glass patterns for all to enjoy until the Christmas holidays.
