During the final week of school before winter break, Winter Wishes were granted all throughout North’s holiday spirit week. Some of the gifts that were granted were gag gifts, others large, small, beneficial, or truly meaningful.
North’s student government helped make this year’s Winter Wishes possible. “We granted a bunch of wishes, like stuffed animals, serenade[d] to people, [gave] candy, gift cards, and that’s just a few from all the other stuff we did,” says Myah Lopez, a member of the student government. At the beginning of the week, little gifts such as sweets and gift cards were given, and as the week went on, bigger wishes were granted. Giant teddy bears, skateboards, all leading up to the holiday assembly where the biggest gifts of all were granted. The entire school saw sophomore, Meghan Cowan, get what she’s always wanted: an adorable, white and gray kitten, which Cowan’s good friend Sarah Thomas wished for her to receive. Meghan’s brother, Jack Cowan, explains, “She was so excited that she finally got a cat… she’s wanted a cat for years.” In addition, freshman Kaileb Grisham received a gag gift, hair gel and a jar of pickles, from his friend Kaitlyn Boudreaux. “I was kind of embarrassed. I had to walk down in front of the school… for a jar of pickles too,” Grisham explains. At the holiday assembly, our sparrow received art supplies and so much more.
Tons of winter wishes were granted all across campus. Some were for fun, a few were meaningful, and others were for people who really needed them. Overall, the students of North Medford High must have been very good this holiday season.
