Spirit Week starts Monday, October 31st through November 4th.  Each day we will have a theme for students to dress up as and earn points for their grade level.  At the end of the week, the grade level with the most points wins a super, fun filled activity. This is a fun way to show our school spirit!

 Monday – Character Day
Tuesday – Pajama Day
Wednesday – Crazy Hat, Hair, Accessory Day
Thursday – Dress a Different Age Day
Friday – Color Battle Day
