Homerooms Compete in Door Decorating Contest
By Brennan Meeks
Patterson continued an annual tradition this year by hosting a door decorating competition to celebrate Homecoming week from Oct 22-26.
Students in each homeroom class worked together to create an original design promoting Patterson pride on their classroom doors, using whatever materials they could find. A team of judges announced a winner for each of the three floors in the building.
The homerooms that won the contest are Mr. Wagoner’s class (1st floor), Mr Laqui’s class (2nd floor), and Ms. Berdin’s class (3rd floor). Mr. Wagoner’s door was decorated with a clipper ship, paper footballs, and images of Patterson students.
Mr. Laqui’s door had a lot decorations, including footballs and a cemetery with gravestones and ghosts, representing Edmonson High School’s football team (who Patterson would face in the Homecoming game). The graveyard theme also connected with the fact that Halloween was coming up. Some of the footballs were pink, in honor of breast cancer awareness month. The background of this door is a football field with a lot of images of football players.
Ms. Berdin’s door featured a clipper ship, blue streamers and photos of Patterson football players’ heads with bodies drawn on with markers. Even Mr. Benton’s head was included as a football player!
We would like to congratulate these three homerooms, along with all the other classes who participated, for their hard work and creativity in making their doors look nice for Homecoming.
