Holiday Hallway Wars

PDX Parent
Three days left until Christmas comes to life at St. Dominic

As the Christmas season is approaching us, the St. Dominic community always tries to add some fun to the busy, stressful month.

The St. Dominic students and faculty work together to create a hallway that represents a Christmas movie. This year it looks a little different, with all six houses having the opportunity to work together, to create different scenes of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

When it comes to house competitions, it gets very competitive in the St. Dominic hallways. Each house would love to come out with a win at the end of day, but there can only be one winner. 

“It’s hard to say who will win. I think we have a lot of artistic and creative minds in our school so it’ll be hard to choose,” House Temperencia Mentor Mrs. Eichmeyer said. 

As House Tempertania gets started on scene two of the jolly Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer, they all come together to decorate their hearts out, to the best of their abilities. 

“I honestly don’t know! Gaudium has been the best house in the past three years doing this- I think the art teachers will do some great stuff with their section,” House Dignitas Mentor Mr. Small said. 

Even though this is a competition, all the houses at the end of the day are extremely supportive, and proud of each other, to be able to create a memorable experience for everyone at St. Dominic.   

“I think House Gratia will win, because we have amazing students and staff that work together and make it a fun time,” House Gratia Mentor Mrs. Jurgensmeyer said. 

Christmas time at St. Dominic has always been a time where everyone gets closer, before we all split for the holidays. Lots of the teachers have found joy, and excitement when it comes time for the hallway decorating season. 

“I get most excited about seeing kids’ creativity shine as they come up with wild ideas and try to bring it to life…it’s like our own version of Food Network Holiday Bake Off,” Mr. Small said. 

Having fun during the school year is what the community loves to see, especially during stressful times, such as the end of the semester finals. Seeing teachers and students bond during Christmas time is all that God asks for, for all of us. 

The hallway decorating is an unforgettable experience for everyone at St. Dominic. Christmas time is a cherished, and festive season that brings people together in the spirit of joy, love, and generosity. As we celebrate this festive season, let’s never forget we are doing this for God.
