Holiday contests give students, staff chance to win special prizes

Posted on Dec. 10 2014 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
It's almost winter break, and the holiday spirit is spreading quickly here at McCulloch! We have two special contests coming up for students and staff.
Christmas Theme Dress-up Day:
On Thursday, Dec. 18, the last student day before winter break, all students and staff are encouraged to dress up in their holiday "best". We want to see everyone in red and green, ugly Christmas sweaters, or other Christmas attire, accessories, etc. Each fourth period teacher will choose the "best-dressed" in his or her class, and those students will win a prize. In addition, there will be an ugly Christmas sweater competition for staff, and the winner will earn a prize! (Click the image above for a larger version of the flier.)

Door Decorating Contest: 
All fourth period classes are invited to participate. Choose a theme, and get creative! Doors will be judged the morning of Thursday, Dec. 18 (the last student day before winter break). There will be prizes for a winning class in seventh grade and in eighth grade. (Click the image above for a larger version of the flier.)
McCulloch wishes all of its students, families, staff, and our community a very special holiday season and a Merry Christmas!
