Another Christmas has come and gone and Alpha celebrated by hosting a Ho-Ho-Ho Down! Student Council planned an event in lieu of Pancakes with Santa. On December 16th, 2016, students were dismissed from classes at 1:20 pm and invited to the large gym to participate in Christmas themed activities. Students took pictures with Santa, made holiday cards and laughter filled the air while students and staff square danced in the middle of the gym.
“This event is awesome because it brings the school community together, it gathers spirit and there are fun activities for all ages.” said Ms. Manhas, a teacher at Alpha.
“It's fun, the activities are good and Santa is here. I wish we could wear our pajamas, maybe next year!” said Grade 8 student, Sophia Brugger.
All in all, bringing the Alpha community together at the Ho-Ho-Ho down was a great way to end the last school day of 2016.
