Mu Alpha Theta, the mathematics honor society, hosted a holiday spirit competition at Waynesville High School by challenging teachers to decorate a class-themed Christmas tree for the cafeteria. Mu Alpha Theta students decorated the hallways with holiday puns for a humorous, festive atmosphere.
The winners of the Christmas Spirit at Waynesville High School contest is the Autism Class with a tree decorated with painted wooden puzzle pieces using symbols that represent their students and their endeavors.
2nd place winner is the Math Class that used a white tree with colorful rulers, pencils, protractors, "nets" and spheres with a jewel-toned color palette.
Honorable mentions: (tied for third place) are Special Education with an egg/chicken tree that was decorated with egg garland and chickens to represent their chicken coop project and Tiger Joe with a pink snowman tree representing their support for breast cancer patients and survivors.
