This December was the First Annual Door Decorating Contest at Hicksville High School. English teacher, Mr. Artie Mediate came up with the fantastic idea and the Director of Student Activities, Mrs. Angela Galante made it happen! Over 65 classroom doors participated in the contest and they were all phenomenal!! Ms. Temps and her Robotics team along with Ms. Hagedorn, Mr. Baio and the Equality Club also did a wonderful “Winter Wonderland” display in the lobby. The winner of the contest was room 323 decorated by Ms. Hurley, Ms. Pirozzi, and Ms. Shtein.
The door displayed a quilt held by a 3D reindeer. Each square of the quilt contained a quote submitted by each student stating how they celebrate their holiday and their individual traditions. Next year there will be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for each floor and hopefully 100% participation! The entire faculty, staff, and the students were excited to decorate the doors and the lobby and the holiday spirit was felt throughout the building!! We are looking forward to this tradition continuing in the high school for years to come!!
