Just before students head for the holidays, there were a few more presents that councils have been preparing for. SBA Christmas, presented by PowerSource, took place on December 16 and truly put Cardinals into the holiday mood.
Arts Council has been getting ready for months now. President Julia Pazzano explained, “The main thing that we were working on were decorations. We spent a couple weeks getting everything together. Throughout the event, we ran the Vinyl Cafe alongside Athletics Council.” Decorations included stockings, candy canes, and hidden gingerbread that could get you a free snack at the Vinyl Cafe. Arts Council has been know to go ever the top with decorations; however, they decided to stick to the basics this Christmas. It overall turned out more festive.
PowerSource’s organizational skills worked out fantastically. The talent show, which takes the main focus of every SBA Christmas, included many performances from talented students such as Rikashay who have performed at almost every SBA event for the past year. Event organizer Mr. Chow explained why SBA Christmas was and will be one of the events that singles itself out saying, “Being part of the beautiful school community that we have at SBA can be brought out through the joy of giving!” For some it was all up to the Christmas movie classic Elf’s motto: the
best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.
What really allows SBA Christmas to be as extensive as it is, is the participation of multiple councils. Student Council member Abbey Clapperton said, “As a part of Student Council I was able to do the button making and I feel that by having all the councils in the atrium doing multiple activities, we were able to get closer, communicate more, and share ideas. There is not a lot of opportunities for that and I love that about SBA Christmas!”
A huge thanks goes out to not only PowerSource but to every council member, executive, and staff that helped make the night possible. The night was amazing!
