From Dec. 11-15, Student Council hosted their annual Winter Week, which is a fundraising event that helps raise money for the Travelers Rest Police Department’s Toy Drive.  

During the week, students have the option to dress up according to the theme of the day. Monday was PJ day, Tuesday was Clout vs. Camo, Wednesday was Hawaiian Holidays, Thursday was Northpole vs. Whoville, and Friday was an Ugly Holiday Sweater theme. In addition to dressing up, students could buy a variety of foods such as chocolate chip pizza, Bo Berry Biscuits, Zaxby’s Nibblerz, doughnuts, Chick-fil-a Biscuits and Minis, and Moes. The food was a fun way to include the student body throughout the day. Teachers also provided incentives such as notecards for test days and extended study periods to encourage students to donate money. 

To provide some laughter to conclude Winter Week, the boys of Student Council performed a dance at the pep rally from the movie Mean Girls. In addition to the boys performing a dance, a few people were selected to play games such as ‘finish the lyric’ and ‘build a snowman.’ Overall, the total amount raised was $6,158.67.

On Dec. 18, Student Council Members went to Walmart at 5:00 a.m to buy gifts for the local kids. Student Council Co-Advisor Denna McCarrell said her favorite part about Winter Week is “going to Walmart and shopping and it’s neat for the students to see what they can buy.” Student Body Vice President Bethany Tankersley said, “It’s a great opportunity to help our local children have Christmas and help the student body push through until Christmas break.” Winter Week was huge success as it helped the local children of Travelers Rest have a great Christmas.
