The ornaments were submitted as part of Reed's Reading Tree, an annual event asking students to decorate a holiday ornament featuring a scene or character from a book.
This year, students were asked to make three-dimensional ornaments made entirely of recycled materials as part of the Indiana Department of Education's ongoing Learn Green, Live Green initiative.
"We received a tremendous response from schools across the state," said Reed. "This shows a true commitment to reading from students, teachers and administrators. It also shows a commitment to environmental education. The level of creativity exhibited in the ornaments is outstanding. All the students should be very proud of their work."
