We hope you all had a wonderful holiday break with the kids back home. We enjoyed our time away as well, but we’re excited to see the kids return. First semester finished with some fun holiday festivities here in the dorms.
First the kids put up Christmas trees in the dorms and our dorm moms, Brenda Munks and Cecilia Montalvo, put up some amazing decorations on the fronts of both dorms. Next, we had our Christmas Head’s Dinner hosted by Mr. Molak on December 8th. Again, our dorm moms, along with other day student parent volunteers, decorated the dining hall to make it a beautiful, festive occasion. Finally on December 19th, we had our annual Secret Santa gift exchange. The kids drew names out of a hat a few weeks before to decide who they were getting a gift for. On the 19th, we had the big gift exchange. Freshman boarding student Milla Bevens’ grandmother brought hot apple cider and cookies, and Daisy Alvarado-Munoz, a junior Prefect, got dressed up like Santa and handed out gifts from under the tree. Overall, the holidays were a fun time, and a great way to ease the stress of finals before break. Enjoy the pictures!
