Senior and secretary Bella Clyde and fellow students work on flyers to advertise a Winter Wonderland event.
“So our Johnson Winter Wonderland is held once a year. It’s kind of a way to bring together the community and to celebrate the holidays. We offer pictures with Santa and different activities depending on how much you pay,” Clyde said.
There are two types of tickets for the Dec 14 Winter WonderLand event; both can be bought online.
“The tickets for a family of five cost 25 dollars. But if you are just doing activities it will cost you 10 dollars,” Clyde said.
The event stays the same year to year with only minor changes.
“We actually keep it relatively the same every year since it is successful every year. We will once again be having our Santa to take photos with. We have changed up a couple of events. Were trying new more creative activities then we have in previous years,” senior and vice president Alaysia Brooks said.
Student council is adding in new events this year alongside their older ones like Cake Walk.
“Some new activities we have added are stress balls. We take balloons and fill them up with sand. Were going to have kids decorate them. We have our normal ones like bingo and Going Again. We have picture frames that were doing and many other things,” Brooks said.
The event is one of student councils most successful and famous events all year.
“We get three-hundred people floating in and out. Mostly teachers that want to bring their kids or people who want to get their Santa pictures of the list,” Clyde said.
The Santa for the Winter Wonderland is the same one as used in the years prior.
“Our Santa, it’s going to be the same santa as always. We had a little bit of issues with scheduling and getting in contact with him. But it’s the same Santa as always,” Brooks said.
So if your in town student council encourages students to come to the Winter Wonderland.
“Winter Wonderland is a fun activity. It’s a good way to get involved in the community. Whenever its around think about attending it,” Brooks said.
