Before the break, Lake Howell experienced its first ever winter week! Students bussed as the holiday spirit filled the air with the different themed days. The week was used to help raise various items to donate to our school’s food pantry.
The week kicked off with students wearing pajamas to school, while the entertainment for the night was a dodgeball tournament. That Tuesday was the Ghost of Holidays Past where students dressed up in decade theme clothing. Wednesday was Shweater Shwednesday, students wore their holiday sweaters to the school and were encouraged to wear them to the boys basketball game against Lake Nona as well. On Thursday students dressed up as different holiday characters or decorations to symbolize Holiday Madness. That same night to continue the madness the Polar Plunge Pool Party was held as a fundraiser for Prom 2017. To end the week in true floridan fashion, students dressed as tacky tourists to represent a floridian holiday and after school was the show in the snow where the movie elf was played in the auditorium.
Overall winter week was something new and interesting for Lake Howell and the food, toys, and money raised were used to help those in need to give back during the holidays.
