Trenton students are finding ways to make this holiday one of the best to remember. Being in the holiday season means it is time to get festive. The first weeks leading to our break from school consisted of many merry events. We have worn our seasonal hats, pajamas and sweaters. Not only are students getting into the celebratory season, but teachers and administrators are also finding joy. Many educators at AMS are playing some upbeat and joyful holiday music during class. This makes class less stressful and more fun.
Our Knight Prides, a group of students in all grades, comes together monthly to develop school-wide activities that will create bonding. This month the activity is to decorate the classroom door with the spirit of the season. Each door will be judged by the administration and the winning class earns a hot chocolate and bagel day.
The Knight Prides always focus on school togetherness but during this season of giving the students were more involved and it made the activity more enjoyable. Sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students came together to design their door.
The gift-giving season is always a favorite among children, but Arthurs makes it about more than just receiving gifts, but also about community interaction and accepting one another.
Thank you to Ms. O’Connor and Mrs. Rhoades for making this holiday season more enjoyable at school. We look forward to what 2017 has to offer.
