Class Committees have chosen their hallway theme for Turkey Day.

The KHS Turkey Day tradition of decorating each grade level’s hallway is rapidly approaching, prompting each Class Committee to start planning their hallway. The committees have recently chosen their grade level’s hallway theme and revealed the results which led to a variety of responses from students. The freshman hallway theme will be “Winter Wonderland,” the sophomore hallway will be “Decades,” the junior hallway will be “Mario Kart” and the senior hallway will be “Phineas and Ferb.”

Hadley Kates, freshman, is in favor of the festive “Winter Wonderland” theme. Kates is on the Class Committee and voted on the freshman theme this year.

“I’m really excited to work on [the hallway] and see how it turns out,” Kates said. “With everybody’s good ideas, it’s going to [end up looking] really great.”

Along with freshmen, sophomores are in their first year of participating in this Turkey Day tradition. Daniel O’Leary, sophomore, is a part of the sophomore Class Committee, and has assisted in choosing the theme of decades. 

“[Decades] is a really cool [and] fun way to see the past 100 years,” O’Leary said. “Going through every decade has really shown how our culture has grown over the years.”

The junior class has participated in one year of Turkey Day traditions, and has chosen to decorate their hallway. Julia McDonald, junior, says she supports the junior hallway theme because each student had the ability to give their opinions on the theme before deciding as a class.

People were happy with the theme since we all got to vote and share our opinions during the meetings.”

“People were happy with the theme since we all got to vote and share our opinions during the meetings,” McDonald said. “Our hallway is going to be really good this year, especially since we didn’t really have Turkey Day sophomore year.” 

Underclassmen are less familiar with the Turkey Day tradition than seniors, who have been participating their entire high school career. Regan Gould, senior, said the senior class will have no problem making any hallway theme a success.  

“[Phineas and Ferb] definitely wasn’t my first choice of themes,” Gould said. “But I think our class can make any theme good. I think it will end up turning out great, especially for our last year at KHS.”
