With the wrap of the 2016-2017 school year, exams, final deadlines, and graduation coming, the yearbook class decided to have a week dedicated to food to celebrate all of the hard work they have accomplished.

The week before “Food Week,” the class divides themselves into groups of 5 or 6 people. The groups have time to get together to decide what their theme is going to be, the day they are going to go, and who is in charge of bringing what. It is a fun activity to relieve stress and focus on something fun. The themes range anywhere from murder mystery, carnival, movies, beach, to Christmas.

During the chosen week, the members of the groups are allowed to come into Mrs. Judy Cannaday’s class at the end of sixth period to start setting up for the party. When the bell rings, they close the blinds and have the other students wait outside until they’re done. The groups are allowed to use streamers, re-arrange the desks, and put up any decorations they brought in. Food ranges from fruits, veggies, finger foods, to desserts. It is overall a lot of fun for the staff and a really good stress reliever.

Each day is a new theme, and most of the groups don’t tell others what they are. It makes for a lot of guessing and mystery trying to figure the day’s theme. Overall, it really brings the staff together again, and is a fun way to end the year.

This year, the first day was Beauty and the Beast themed. The desks were all brought together at the center of the classroom, to resemble a long dinner table, as seen in the movie. We sat along the table, eating cake, mac n’ cheese, and drank sparkling apple juice. Streamers, and drawn out decorations were placed around the table. For day two, there was a Luau party. Leis were worn around necks, and lemonade was served as the staffers sat around pool floaties and flowers. The following day; day three was movie themed. Tables were set up each with a different movie. Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs, Mean Girls, Beauty and the Beast, The Breakfast Club, and Finding Dory. They had tables in groups of four with different foods for that match the movies, as well as props for each of them. Due to teacher proctoring, group number four was pushed until the following week. It made the fun last longer. The fourth group on food week did a Christmas theme. Stockings were hung, and cookies were served. The group even brought in a griddle to make fresh pancakes. Lastly, group five did a carnival theme. Popcorn, corn dogs, and cupcakes were the hit of the Aftermath Carnival. The team even set up a photo booth to take fun pictures of the staff.

All in all, food week is a great week to take a break on the work they have been doing all year, and a chance to really bond as a staff. Memories were made and it was definitely something to make all of the hard work of the yearbook worth it.
