As part of their newest Christmas tradition, the Twelve Days of Holiday Hopes, students at Montini Catholic participated in the Campus Ministry sponsored Homeroom Christmas Decorating Contest. Walls and ceilings were decked and donned by Broncos all in the hopes of winning the newly coveted title of Best Decorated Homeroom. Judges toured the homerooms during the week of December 10th, tabulated the scores and announced the winners on Thursday, December 13th. "Many rooms were so creative that the judges decided to give out three awards this year," said Theology Teacher, Katie Wall who was instrumental in getting the students and teachers inspired to participate in what quickly became a fierce competition. "We gave out a Department Award (won this year by the Math Department), as well as a Most Spirited Homeroom Award and a Best Decorated Homeroom Award!" Ms. Wall and Campus Minister, Michael Blanchette, delivered the awards on Friday to the winning homerooms. "We hope that this year students were inspired to get even more creative with their decorating next year," said Ms. Wall, who hopes to keep this newest Bronco tradition alive and thriving year to year.

There was no shortage of creativeness throughout homerooms. Students greeted the judges by singing Christmas Carols, dressing as Santa Claus and offering gifts of candy canes and hot chocolate.

Montini Catholic's Twelve Days of Holiday Hopes was created as a lead-up to the annual Adopt A Family Wrapping Day - a day when students gather all of their donated gifts and items for needy families and get them ready for delivery. The Twelve Days began with the Thanksgiving Prayer Service and ended with the school's Advent Service (on Friday, December 14th).

"Through the 12 Days festivities we are hoping to encourage our students to donate and get excited about the holidays and most of all about helping those in need," said Mr. Blanchette. (The 12 Days of Holiday Hopes event also included a Candy Cane Grams sale where students could purchase candy canes with notes to be delivered to friends, as well as a Christmas Raffle with winners drawn each day. All money collected went back to Montini Catholic's Christmas Adopt-A-Family program which helps to give families in need, a memorable Christmas.)
