Amidst the backdrop of final exams there have been so many special holiday moments that have taken place at THS over the past few weeks leading up to Winter break. THS is a positive place where students and faculty, clubs and groups, all go out of their way to bring smiles, love and support throughout the year, but especially during In case you missed any of them here is a brief recap.
ASB students surprised their peers by coming in over the weekend and decorating the campus and B-Wing hall way for the holidays at the beginning of December. Hundreds of decorations hung from the ceiling and a tree with lights lit up the hallway.
Students took the opportunity to bless others in our community by taking part in the Salvation Army Angel Tree program which gave our students the chance to buy a present for a child in need. From the kindness in their heart they covered all the “angels” given to our school and helped make 15 young people, ages 1 – 16, who they will never meet have a great holiday.
Our Spanish classes sung carols in Spanish through THS classrooms bringing smiles to the faces of those who heard all the while working on their Spanish vocabulary and presentation skills.
Our Floral Design class created wreaths and table settings as part of their curriculum but also as a way to bring holiday cheer to those in the community.
Link Crew, for their monthly freshman activity, hosted their annual Reindeer Races pitting Link Crew groups against each others. These monthly events build memories and relationships between our Link leaders and their crew and give our freshmen the opportunity to step outside their comfort zones and enjoy a little friendly competition.
The ASB hosted their annual “Ugly Sweater” contest allowing students to show their creativity and get some good laughs.
Link Crew, Peer Tutors and the THS faculty teamed together and hosted their annual Cocoa and Cram, an opportunity for students to get one last chance to study for their final exams with help from staff and tutors and free hot chocolate.
In a variety of places and ways students showed their kindness toward others though exchanging cards, gifts or just kind words.
THS members of the National Art Honor Society have shared the holiday spirit by using their talents and skills to help beautify local businesses for the holidays.
Grade are important and our students have worked hard to show what they know through the projects they have done, the presentations they have made, the questions they have answered and the papers they have written. We are thankful for all the hard work that our students, faculty and staff have put in. But we are also thankful for the many ways that students cared for others these past few weeks through kindness shown, events planned and traditions that continued.
Have a great break and we look forward to the second semester.
