The Winterfest activities began on Monday, January 2 with an overall theme of candy and gum.

Twin day was on Wednesday, and there were many duplicates around campus. During advisory, the Letterman’s club beat the faculty in a basketball game. A halftime activity took place during the game in which freshman Mark Lennel won a cash prize.
Students sported a classier look on Thursday for nerd day. Karaoke was that night and the auditorium was packed to its maximum occupancy with locals to see Lowry students and faculty sing. The boys varsity basketball team kicked off the night with a rendition of Aerosmith’s “Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing”, and Hailey Samms won first place.
