Christmas is Not Just for the Home


Nancy Mellor, Staff Writer

AHS is embracing the Christmas Spirit with whole heart. Student Government and teachers have been diligently working on making campus a Christmas wonderland.

Snowflakes have danced their way into the hallways and senior Emma Schmidt and junior Eliza Fichialos along with the help of Student Government have been busy making and putting up custom, name plated, paper stockings over the lockers. 

Classrooms have also exploded with holiday cheer. Gingerbread men, stars, Christmas lights and other decorations have danced their way into our classrooms and have brightened this holiday to another level. Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year at home, or at school. 

Not only that but AHS has another trick up her sleeve. In the High School Commons students will notice four Christmas trees. Those will be used for AHS’s Christmas tree decorating contest. The rules to play are simple. Each grade will decorate a tree starting December 1-15. The trees are labeled by grade level. As a rule, students are not allowed to damage any decorations on any of the trees or tough the other grades’ trees. All decorations should stay in a one-foot space around the tree. Judging will be done by Mrs. Hilmo, Mrs. Culver, Mr. Hendrickson, and Mrs. Hendrickson on December 15 during Advisory. Judging will be based on creativity, design, appeal, and staying within a theme. The winner will be announced on December 16 with a reward of a Spirit Day on January 7. 

Merry Christmas AHS!
