Well my students helped to produce another winner. This year the club that sponsors the contest diversified and created categories. We were the “most festive”. I have heard through the grapevine that others were wining that we use power tools!

If you have seen National Lampoon’s Christmas vacation, all of this makes sense to you. pic 2- tree breaking out the front window, 3-squirrel in the tree when the first tree burns up and he gets a replacement from the front yard, 4- the cat that chewed on the electrical wire.

5-6 were our little flare. We had to go with a “warrior holiday” which is our logo to qualify for the contest. So the stockings are all the principals in the building. Also the decoration on the top in pic 1 is the club’s diamond logo in lights. A little kiss up I know. But i was told, people are now expecting this level of display from us, especially since I do the drama play sets too.

i had forgotten all about your display—oh what a joy to see this year’s version. As soon as I saw tht title I got all excited; I couldn’t wait to see what your class had created this year.

It’s awesome – AGAIN.
LOVE the tree/window component.. great job

and the “suck-up” additions. Perfect :)

Also, everyone could use power tools .. if they don’t know how perhaps they need to take your class.
