Last week, Clearwater Central Catholic High School had a week filled with fun to celebrate Christmas!! To kick off this celebratory time, there were festive dress down days, including “The Night Before Christmas” pajama day, Christmas Character Day, “Gone Skiing” attire, Flannel Friday and more! The students had fun dressing up and matching with their friends. It was a great week full of awesome activities like the Snow Glow volleyball tournament, Secret Santa gift exchanges, and a hallway decorating competition. The hallways were all fabulous, decorated with Christmas trees, lights, and according to different themes like Home Alone 2, The Grinch, Elf, and A SpongeBob Christmas. The students’ hard work was well presented – and the Class of 2023 Seniors won!

During this eventful week, the Spanish Honor Society toy drive also took place. This was a toy drive that benefited residents of San Juan Mission – a Catholic organization in our local community. Our CCC students generously donated many gifts that helped to support this great cause! In addition, we held a special Advent mass, followed by a tree-lighting ceremony  around the campus Christmas tree, which created a great ending to the week and allowed the students to reflect upon the close of first semester.

It was truly an inspiring week, full of fun dress-down days, sports, gift drives, mass, and  hallway decorating!!
