With the holiday season upon us, what's better than gathering with your family and personally making your own ornaments while being treated to free cookies and desserts and listening to traditional Christmas music? On Saturday, December 2, the class of 2018 did just that when they hosted their first ever “Paint Your Own Ornament” fundraiser.

Not only was there painting but also story time for the youngsters. Kids filled their hands with cookies and cups of milk and gathered for a Christmas story told by one of the elves. It was then that their parents were able to take a break and enjoy the refreshments while painting their own ornaments.

The event raised over one thousand dollars, according to class treasurer Anthony Witte. “All the money raised will be used on upcoming senior events like the All Night Party, Senior Banquet and what not.” All these senior events will be happening in the upcoming months. Anthony's main role was making sure everyone was happy and had all of their supplies. He even had to dress up for the occasion. He expressed, “It was my goal to have the ugliest sweater there. When I looked around, I had some competition, but I think I took first place!”
People of all age groups attended this festive event. Everyone who attended will be having an extra ornament on the tree this year. When people were leaving they were already asking about next year's ornament painting, so it's safe to say this fundraiser will be happening in the future.
