With Christmas and the New Year right around the corner, holiday spirit is at an all time high.
When it comes to winter break student’s are excited and eager for it to begin. Being so, the last week of school tends to feel like it’s going slower than usual. However, our students came up with multiple activities to keep them busy as the holiday season approaches.
Although our students first priority is academics, we decided to throw in a couple activities. The school held a door decorating contest. A couple student’s from each class took up the challenge to make their teachers door the best of the best. Soon the hallways filled up with Christmas themed doors and lights. In every hallway you are bound to see a snowman, Christmas trees. The winner of the contest being the beautiful sight of Mrs. Warrenfeltz, Physical Education and Health teacher, about to get ran over by a reindeer.
Last week, it was also decided that we have a “Holiday Themed Spirit Week”. Walkersville SGA announced the theme for each day via twitter, “Monday- Pajama Day, Tuesday- Holiday Character Day, Wednesday- Holiday Class Color Day”, Thursday- Christmas Wacky Tacky Day, Friday- Ugly Sweater Day”.
The holiday spirit student’s showed was impeccable and a joyful experience. On Monday, students showed up in their favorite holiday jammies. News flash, 18 year olds still love onesies with all of their hearts. The following day, Holiday Character Day, students dressed from their favorite movies swarmed the hallways. Senior Madeline Torrez says, “My favorite costume had to be a kid I saw with a Grinch mask, I’m not sure who it was, but it made me smile.”
Although it is winter break and the majority of students are excited about Christmas, the community makes sure our holiday spirit is not gift oriented. This time of year is a time to be thankful and giving. “I believe Christmas Spirit is about they joy and love we fill the air with, you don’t necessarily need to even celebrate Christmas to feel the joy of giving and enjoying winter break,” said Junior Sonih Scott.
With the way this week has gone, the Walkerville community is ready to kick off on the winter break. Hopefully all will come back in the new year feeling rejuvenated and ready to get back to work!
