The week leading up to Holiday Break was an eventful one for the JSHS students and staff. In addition to normal routine, students participated in holiday cheer with a spirit week featuring holiday socks, hats, and pajamas, a red versus green war, and ugly sweaters. During lunches, students could participate in a candy count with the winner earning the jar of sweet treats. At the end of the week, the halls smelled of holiday goodies when the staff and administration delivered cookies and hot cocoa to the students during 3rd period. Yum! And at the end of the day, students and staff got to enjoy a holiday pep rally hosted by the High School Student Council and President Ian Byrne. There, many games were played such as a reindeer toss, a winter version of Pin the Tail on the Donkey, an ugly sweater contest, a scooter race, a bouncy ball race, and a wrapping paper race. Santa (Mr. Herrick) also made an appearance to add to the fun. Students left the campus with a spring in their step and songs in the air as they left for Holiday Break. Tully wishes each and every student and family a wonderful holiday season!
