This past week, students completed “service week” activities, including a food drive for a local food pantry and directly to families in need, “Mad Hatters” to raise money for a local charity, and penny wars to raise money for a local charity. By meeting goals for these services, students could earn various activities for “spirit week.”
Spirit week activities include a float building competition, girls dodge-ball competition, hula hoop rock-paper-scissors race, talent show, boys volleyball, the district pep rally and a parade.
Each day during spirit week, students can dress up each day for a theme. Monday is “pajama day”, Tuesday is “tourist Tuesday”, Wednesday is “we look alike Wednesday,” Thursday is “class color day,” and Friday is “purple and gold day.”
