Crestview Middle School
Leading up to Christmas, many kids turn their attention to Santa Claus and chimneys. At Crestview Middle School, things were a little different, this year, as students paid close watch to cheerleaders and classroom doors.
For a minimum donation of 10 dollars, classrooms were able to enter a Christmas door decorating contest, sponsored by the 7th and 8th grade cheerleaders, with the winning class receiving a free donut breakfast.
The Christmas cheer generated by the contest extended beyond the school’s hallways, as proceeds from the entry fees were used to purchase gifts for the local Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program.
The Angel Tree program, which has operated for over thirty years, pairs children in need with organization or individuals looking to assist them with Christmas wishes and needs.
Crestview cheerleaders are: Easah Bartrom, Sydney Cotton, Abby Denman, Macy Long, Avery Pohler, Haley Preston, Stella Scheer, Lara Steele, Kimmy Boxell, Mya MacAleese, Kyla Reich, Carly Roth, Audrey Rittenhouse and Janna Teusch. They are coached by Amanda Pye.
The contest winning Polar Express door was created by Mr. Bolinger’s class.
