The first snow has fallen and the holiday spirit can be felt everywhere! As the holidays approach, Watchung Hills is taking many steps to spread the holiday spirit around school. The All School Council (ASC) will again be selling holiday grams and hosting a holiday-themed spirit week during the week preceding winter break.
Holiday grams are being sold now and can be purchased for $1 either in Ms. Kelly’s room or from any ASC member. Holiday grams are a fun way of to spread the spirit around school. When students purchase a gram, they are able to write fun messages on the papers and send them to their friends. Their friends will receive the notes, along with candy canes, on Friday, December 23.
Sophomore ASC member Megan Gerges is selling holiday grams of her own, as she believes that “it [selling holiday grams] is a great way to promote the [holiday] spirit, and it is a great way to do something nice for someone else.”
Another sophomore, Elizabeth Nuzzi, cannot wait for the holiday grams, as “it is always so much fun to think of a funny message to send to your friends, or to receive them yourself!”
Spirit week is also nearing and will be held the week of December 19th. Each day of that week, students are encouraged to wear clothing and/or apparel related to each of the designated themes. The themes are as follows:
Monday is SNOW DAY: students should come dressed in their pajamas!
Tuesday is HOLIDAY HAT DAY: students should show off their best holiday themed hat!
Wednesday is WINTER SPORTS DAY: students should wear a jersey of their favorite winter sports team, such as skiing, ice hockey, or basketball!
Thursday is BLIZZARD: students should come in all white!
Friday is UGLY SWEATER DAY: students should show off their best ugly holiday sweater!
All students are greatly encouraged to participate in the sending of holiday grams, in addition to dressing up all week to spread holiday spirit.
Sophomore ASC member Gabriella Santos is excited for the upcoming spirit week as “it is always such a great thing, as the themes are always exciting and it gets us in the holiday spirit!”
The more students that are able to participate the more spirit will be spread around the school. Both of these festivities are great ways to get excited and ready for the upcoming winter break, and from all of us at The Arrowhead, happy holidays!
