Chazy students celebrate winter

(Continued)

The winning team will play against some of the members of the Lions Club for fun.

“The kids always get a kick out of that,” Student Council Adviser Justin Frechette said.

BUSY SATURDAY

Saturday is the last day of Winter Weekend, and the Student Council and the Lions Club made sure it will be a packed and fun day for the students.

At noon, the annual snow sculptures are due. This year’s theme is “iPhone apps.” Students can start their sculpture at any time they want, even before Winter Weekend.

“I thought the iPhone app was a great idea that the school council decided for the theme,” Lucas said. “I am sure the students will do their best to represent the individual item that they choose for their snow sculpture.”

At noon, class games will take place at the school gym, with students participating in races, soccer, basketball and other events.

“The class games are usually the crowd’s favorite,” Cahoon said.

After the games, some students will go home to get ready for the dance at 7 p.m., and others will stay in school to help.

The dance will last until 11 p.m., and the student body will vote to choose the king and queen of the night from among the senior students.

The winning class of Winter Weekend will be announced after the dance, based on points earned during the week.

The Lions Club will give small cash donations to each class.

“The class with the highest points will get the highest amount, and the money will be used toward class projects,” Lucas said.

LONG TRADITION

Cahoon is ready for the weekend to start.

“It was a lot of work, and I appreciate the amount of work people have put in it. All my Student Council members worked super hard.”

Frechette made note of the tradition associated with the event.

“I think one of the things that makes the Winter Weekend unique is that our school is the heartbeat and the center of our community,” he said.

“It is a wonderful annual event, and our togetherness makes it very special. It means a lot to the students, as their parents and grandparents also participated in the Winter Weekend.”
