On Dec. 10-14, the Student Council is getting the Longhorns in the holiday spirit by hosting a theme week.

Monday, students and staff are invited to rock their best pair of holiday socks. Tuesday, the classes will be split up for Tis the Season Day. Each class sports a different Christmas color; sophomores wear green, juniors wear red, and seniors wear white.

Wednesday, students can get creative and dress up as their favorite holiday character. Thursday, it’s time to fight the cold and wear something bold. Students and staff wear a hideous holiday sweater.

Friday, bring out your Christmas spirit and come as Santa’s helpers, Santa himself, or tree decorations.

Throughout the week, Student Council will also be at the concession stand during the morning and lunch selling candy canes to be delivered to someone special before the holidays.

 Students will also be encouraged to donate winter clothes, blankets, and anything to help keep warm for the Cozy Drive. Student Council will be collecting these items from homerooms and also a donation room to be designated next week.

The donations will be taken to Star of Hope, an organization in Houston that provides shelter and aid for homeless people throughout the city.
