Seniors win door-decorating contest

DCHS Journalism

This year has been one of the most out-of-the-ordinary years yet, so the students at DCHS are spreading extra Christmas cheer.


Student Council organized a Christmas door-decorating contest. Each class chose two doors around the school to decorate, using the theme “Christmas songs.”


The rules of the contest stated that each decorated door had to open and close and had to follow the theme.


The seniors chose “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” the juniors -“Silver Bells,” the sophomores -“Grandma got run over by a Reindeer,” freshmen - “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer,” 8th grade – “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” and 7th grade – “Winter Wonderland.”



The door decorating was a class competition for class points. The seniors got first place, and the juniors were second. The 8th grade placed third, and the sophomores were fourth.


Senior class president Gracie Vontz said, “The doors this year have been the best ones that I have seen throughout my years, and they are a great way to spread the Christmas spirit we all need.”


 One of the seniors’ doors has a Christmas tree with blue ornaments, which include pictures of the senior class.  They used a filter to make the seniors look younger. Their other doors include a fire place scene using the lyrics from the song “Listen to the fireplace roar.”


For their doors, the 8th graders have a “Naughty List” and a “Nice List.” Above the lockers they have Santa and his reindeer.
