It’s that time of year again. The time when both students and teachers alike begin eagerly awaiting Christmas break. With this anticipation brings thoughts of the last day before break, and the Christmas parties and festivities that will take place on that day.
Each class in junior high and high school chose a theme and meets regularly during lunch to discuss their theme and the details that go into setting up and designing their party.
“I am really excited for our class’s theme this year,” said Julie U, senior.
The list of classes and their themes is as follows: FBI Investigation (seniors), Christmas Morning (juniors), Tacky Christmas (sophomores), 50’s Diner (freshmen), Soccer Christmas (8th grade), and The Wizard of Oz (7th grade). The preschool and elementary classes hold their own individual parties in their classrooms.
The student body is excited for this yearly event, and is putting a lot of time into preparing for the parties.
“I am quite excited to see what the creative minds of the students at FBTA have to offer,” said Ethan C, sophomore.
The junior high and high school competition has been slightly raised due to the fact that the student council added a door decorating competition to the festivities. Each class was assigned a classroom door to decorate and the best doors got points toward their class’s score.
The Christmas season at FBTA is one filled with excitement, and the Christmas parties are an outflowing of that excited energy. Whether it is the eagerness to be gone from school, or an excitement to celebrate the season, the students of FBTA have put a lot of time into making this year’s Christmas parties a memorable event.
