Mother Nature made it clear just how close winter is with a blizzard on Sunday.  However, the snow stopped in time for school on Monday (which made some people happy and others not-so-thrilled).

This week seniors are voting on which color they would like for their graduation gowns.  Although the boys’ gowns are almost always dark blue, the girls’ gowns have been either white or light blue.  Seniors have to decide if they’d like to continue the tradition of different colored gowns for the two genders, and if so, which color they’d like each gender to wear.

Even though winter hasn’t officially arrived yet, the winter sports season has been well underway for weeks.  Winter sports pictures will be taken this Wednesday.  The team pictures are put in the yearbook; athletes have the option to purchase individual photos as well.

Members of the sophomore class are running their annual Holiday Gram fundraiser.  The Holiday Gram includes a personalized message and a small piece of candy.  Anyone may buy them and send them to all fifty of their closest friends.

Student Council and National Honor Society members are in the process of buying and wrapping Christmas presents for children in the Calais Children’s Project.  They raised the money for all the gifts through their annual Rock-a-Thon, which was held two weeks ago.

Between the presents, Holiday Grams, and snow, everyone is is feeling the holiday spirit.  Everyone also seems to be very ready for the upcoming vacation!  We hope everyone has a great week off and a very merry Christmas.
