I don't know what a typical day is at your high school, on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. . . but here's what one is like at mine. . .
In the time-honored tradition of Turkey Day, students decorate the halls with themes and compete for recognition as "Best Hall". This year was one of the better years in recent memory. Every hall was outstanding, from the Freshmen's "Academy Awards", the Juniors "Wizard of Oz" (complete with real live Toto!), to the Band's wonderful "Alice in Wonderland", but the Seniors really showed how it's to be done with their timely tribute to "Grease", complete with a diner, classroom, drive in movie theatre (outside), carnival games, popcorn, and root beer floats! Kids dress the part, and you can't help but smile, which makes for an unbelievably fun day.
I thought it would be tough to get excited about Turkey Day after the tough loss to Webster in the State Semi-Finals this past Friday, but all it took was the effort of our amazing students, and the flame was rekindled.
I really got a kick out of the cutout in the Freshmen hall, where students could put their heads and become two of the cast members from MTV "Jersey Shore". . . Nice touch!!
