Each year the senior class gets together to decorate the senior hallway and the lunchroom however they wish. This activity allows the students to skip the last two periods of their day to participate in the decorating, and collaborate with others’ creativity.
On December 1st, the class of 2018 decided to wrap their lockers with their choice of wrapping paper. They were able to use paint, ribbon, and a lot of tape. They even had a little difficulty towards the end when one locker was unable to be opened.
Mackenzie Bauer stated, “I did red wrapping paper with white christmas designs on it! I was one of the last ones to decorate my locker because I was working on the big Christmas tree. So when I thought I was almost done, I shut my locker to see how it looked but when I tried to open it, I couldn't get it to budge. A bunch of the guys in our class tried to get it and eventually had to use screwdrivers to try and pry it open. It finally got opened and fixed!”
Emily Knoppe mentioned, “I used pink wrapping paper covered in little owls wearing Santa hats. I also tied ribbons around the door so it looks like a present!”
Dalton Gerdes stated, “I used snowman and green wrapping paper, with the green in the middle and snowman on top and bottom, with ribbon covering the seams.”
Not only did the seniors decorate their lockers, but they decorated the hall with lights hanging from the ceiling and the wall for the countdown till Christmas break. The windows in both the hallway and the cafeteria have a snow effect to make it look like it’s always cold inside and snowing outside.
Michelle Bahena mentioned, “I liked how the atmosphere changed from the stress of school to the joy of Christmas. I also liked decorating the cafeteria because I got to stand on a ladder, and I felt so tall!”
Many of the seniors enjoyed these last few hours as the decoration came to an end. The class of 2018 all gathered into the cafeteria to join together in front of the Christmas tree for the final touch.
