It’s December and you know what time of the month it is, Christmas. Delta High School (DHS) Student Council hosts a spirit week at school where students dress up according to a chosen theme for each day. Since it is the last week of students’ first semester before heading off to break and their new year, why not have fun while having their finals at the same time?
To really make the spirit pop out, Mrs. Ames and her team hung decorations in the school hallways and the cafeteria. After students came back from their Thanksgiving break and when they walked in, they were surprised because now it’s Christmastime.
Mrs. Ames and some other teachers help decorate the school every year to bring Christmas spirit to everyone and try to make schools a joyful place to be.
The student council decided to do pajama day first to start the week off and try to keep the stress level down a little bit. Then they did a holiday character because back in the past year they did it, and people really enjoyed that. The next day was ugly sweaters because it’s a tradition every year. Since having finals with dress-up days, students were not forced to dress up, but for some people it’s a nice relief from the intense focus on finals.
Senior Madison Branham said, “I dressed up for pajama day and ugly sweater days, but for holiday character day, I didn’t know the night before the next theme was, so I wasn’t prepared for it. I dressed up because I just love Christmas and I love anything that is extra. My favorite would be the ugly sweater day because everybody really liked my ugly dress. I had a lot of fun.”
