Upcoming Holiday Events and Fundraisers
Saylor Jones, Reporter
The holidays are finally here, which means it's time to do all of your favorite activities. Drinking hot chocolate, looking at Christmas lights, baking cookies, spending time with loved ones, and more are all great ways to spend the holidays. Students at WCTA can expect to have even more fun at school, as StuCo has several great events scheduled for November and December.
First off, starting Monday, Nov. 15, WCTA will be hosting a Tree of Hope fundraiser to collect gifts for local domestic abuse shelters with women and children. All students have to do is take an ornament off of one of the Christmas trees in the cafeteria and buy whatever gift is written on the tag attached to the ornament. This event will end on Dec. 6, so be sure to donate soon!
Not only will WCTA StuCo be giving back to the community this holiday season, but they will also be hosting many fun events at school for students. WCTA StuCo will be holding a Glittering Lights fundraiser at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Dec. 1, 2, and 9 from 4-9 p.m.
There will also be a holiday spirit week from Dec. 6 through Dec. 10 that students are encouraged to participate in.
Monday will be Home Alone day, where students can wear their pajamas to school; Tuesday will be Walking in a Disney Wonderland day where students can dress up as their favorite Disney character; Wednesday will be Do You Wanna Build a Snowman day, where students can wear all white; Thursday will be Ugly Sweater day; and Friday will be Heat miser vs. Snow miser day, where students can dress opposite of how they normally dress.
StuCo will also be putting on a Holiday Movie Night featuring the movie “Elf” on Dec. 3. Lastly, hot chocolate is also being sold for $1 outside of room B102 every morning before school.
WCTA StuCo students are excited to be hosting these fun holiday events.
WCTA sophomore and member of StuCo, Daylin Murnane, said, “I'm most excited about the holiday movie night because that’s when all of the school comes together, and it’s fun to see everyone hanging out and doing something they enjoy.”
Students at WCTA are also excited to get to participate in these events.
Sophomore Anahit Gabrielyan stated, “I’m excited about the Tree of Hope fundraiser because it is supporting a really good cause and the spirit week coming up because all of the spirit days sound fun.”
All in all, the upcoming holiday season is going to be packed full of fun events for students. These events will give students an opportunity to connect with their peers and give back to the community, making the holidays even more enjoyable.
Two Christmas trees are set up in the cafeteria for the Tree of Hope fundraiser to give gifts to victims of domestic abuse during the holidays.
