The junior high is preparing for the upcoming holiday, Christmas. Seventh grader Ava Jones is looking forward to continuing her family’s Christmas traditions. “Collin, Carson, and I wake up at 6:30 every year and wake up our parents to open gifts.” Others have different traditions. “My family goes to my grandma’s for Christmas Dinner,” said Katie Berger.
Food is a common theme amongst the junior high. When asked about Christmas, Marli McGowan said, “My favorite food at Christmas is ham.” Some students even had food on their wish-list. “I want a box of Ritz
crackers,” said Kenny Kiser. Many students are not only excited to receive gifts, but also to give them. Sydney Fredericks said, “I’m giving my mom a necklace from Jared’s, and I can’t wait to see her reaction.” Others have a different agenda. Oliver Smith is planning to play a prank on his little brother Christmas morning. “My plan is to put a fairly large chunk of coal into a little package, and my brother Linus will get a little Christmas surprise from ‘Santa’ (I got him a real present as well).”
Overall everyone is part taking in the holiday cheer. Matt Posego said, ”I want to spread joy throughout the world and an eighty pack of Ho Hos.” Hohoho from Matt Posego and happy holidays from the Junior high.
