With funds running low, the art department held a door decorating competition fundraiser to raise money for supplies. First and second hour could compete in the competition and students and teachers paid a $15 fee. The competition earned the art department over $100 for new supplies.

“I also got to talk to [peers] that I didn’t talk to before in class,” senior Sophia Carlesimo said.

The competition took place during the second week of Dec. during school hours and the winners announced on Dec. 8 were accounting teacher Angela Melton and math teacher Michelle Schuchard. Both classes won a breakfast of juice and pancakes.

“We had a good time bonding,” Melton said, “and doing a good teamwork activity.”
