Songfest and Tree Lighting Begin SM Holiday Season
Songfest and Tree Lighting Begin SM Holiday Season

On Friday, November 30, St. Mark's kicked off its celebration of the holiday season with the annual "Deck the Halls" House Cup Songfest followed by the tree lighting on the VI Form Quad.

Coordinated by Director of Music James Wallace, it is an annual dorm competition for House Cup points, and the winning dorm receives a pizza party. Seven dorms chose to compete, demonstrating their musical abilities and holiday spirit.

A large and enthusiastic crowd enjoyed the evening's revels in the Hinkle Room. In the end, both Sawyer and Pine-Oak tied for first place (two pizza parties!) with Marr-Coolidge finishing just behind them.

The traditional tree lighting ceremony followed, as a crowd of St. Markers gathered on the quad and enjoyed hot chocolate and the camaraderie of community. The holiday season is off to a festive start at St. Mark's!
