This past December, the Woodgrove Student Council hosted the annual Holiday Door Decorating contest. Every homeroom in the school was challenged to participate in the competition by decorating their homeroom door with a holiday or winter theme of their choice. Students and teachers worked together in their homerooms to bring together resources such as photos, ornaments, glitter, lights, and music to use in their door design. By the day before winter break, students were able to walk through the halls and admire many newly decorated classroom entrances.
The Student Council ad hoc committee for Door Decorating was led by Woodgrove sophomore Sara Hallam. Sara and her committee created the rules by which doors could by decorated, and the criteria that the doors would be judged by. The committee also put together a panel of teachers from various departments to judge the final homeroom doors. Theses teachers would choose one winning door from each grade, along with one overall winner.
The winning homerooms of the door decorating competition were announced during the winter concert. The overall winning door belonged to the Junior Class. Each winning team from each grade level received a certificate to display in their homeroom, and the homeroom with the overall best door won a homemade breakfast provided by the Student Council.
