This year, cheerleading coach Olivia McCraw wanted to get into the Christmas spirit by having holiday spirit days. She has made it where every Friday in December, students and falculty can dress up in that day’s apparel for Christmas.

On Friday, December 2nd, students are encouraged to wear Santa hats, elf hats, or reindeer ears.

Students will need to donate $1 to wear their hats and head pieces. All proceeds from Dec. 2 will go to the Out of the Darkness organization in memory of Carson Nichols.

Along with holiday attire, many teachers have decorated their doors, hallways, and have put up department Christmas trees.

Next Friday, December 9th, is ugly a Christmas sweater day. Sweaters can be bought or hand made, the tackier the better!  Students can also wear hats on this day to match their outfits. The money from this day will be given to the Salvation Army.

The last Friday before break will be “The Night Before Christmas.” On this day, students are allowed to wear their Christmas pajamas, but dress code will still be strictly enforced.

“This event is simply for the fun of it and to bring holiday cheer into the school. The end of the semester brings a lot of stress to the school due to standardized testing and other exams. We wanted to start the holidays off right by decking the halls. We want the school environment to be cheerful and exciting for everyone these last few weeks,” said McCraw.
