Annual IAP Door Decoration Contest- The Student Council would like to invite you to our Annual IAP Door Decoration contest for the holidays. This contest will be judged during the afternoon on Wednesday, December 19th. The Student Council would like to let you know the theme for the contest will be the same for all doors this year. The theme is Home Alone. If you can prove that it is related to the 1st Home Alone movie, then it is fair game. The Student Council would like to emphasize that this is a door decoration contest only. Not all entryways are created equal in the school, and so decorations on the walls or floors around the doors are not allowed. This includes the small entryway walls like the ones around Mr. Tunink's door. Basically, if it is not a part of the door, then it will be disqualified. Good luck IAP's!!!
