Spirit Week February 27th - March 3rd
Spirit week runs during the week of Hoop.  It is a fun way to celebrate the week and for the students to show their school spirit.  We encourage all students to have fun with this and to dress up for each of our spirit days!  This year's spirit week themes were announced at our kick-off assembly on February 10th.  Just a reminder, spirit week is the week of February 27th - March 3rd.
  • Monday is Pajama Day
  • Tuesday is Sports Day
  • Wednesday is Lumberjack Day
  • Thursday is Disney Day
  • Friday is Class Choice (Each class will pick their theme for the day.  Ask your student what they choose.)

Employee Match
