Special holiday events include:

  • Christmas Cookie Swap: bring a half-dozen cookies in a plastic zipper bag with the recipe. For every six cookies you leave, take six home!
  • Christmas Scavenger Hunt: stop into each classroom to find out what's new for second semester. While you're there, find the Christmas decoration unique to that room. Turn in your completed map for a prize!
  • Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest: students are encouraged to wear their ugliest holiday sweaters to classes on Monday and keep them on for the Open House. Judging at 5:00. Categories: strangest, glitziest, and most Christmas-y.
  • Blind White Elephant Exchange: Here's your chance to unload the worst white elephant gift you own--and risk getting a worse one! Wrap up the gift you want to lose and deposit it on the white elephant table. You MUST take a new unwrapped gift with you when you leave. Spend the rest of the year trying to figure out whose horrible present you ended up with!
