As we’ve mentioned recently in our communication to you, and at PA meetings, this time of year is challenging for high school students. They are working hard through Trimester 2, with eyes on March 13th when they can take a break!
An annual tradition that happens each year during the second week of February--intended to spark laughter, collaboration, creativity, and community, is SPIRIT WEEK.
And what an incredibly fun week this has been in the high school! Led by our Student Government Executive Board: Michelle, President, Emily, Vice-President of Communication, Dakota, Vice President of Social Justice, Onaje, Vice-President of Programming, Ajahni, Junior Executive, and our LREI Grade-Level Representatives: 9th grade, Ciara and Charlie; 10th Grade, Margaret and Rhyus; 11th grade Aidhan and Dylan; and 12th grade Sophie, Ariella and Skyler. And of course, our incredibly creative, and organized Student Government faculty sponsor, Ann Carroll.
Our week began in pajamas! Even our most skeptical of students couldn’t help but laugh at Allison greeting students at the door in a unicorn onesie and hair towel, and Margaret solving problems in an elephant onesie. The smiles continued throughout the day as students enjoyed the relaxed, sleepy pace.
Tuesday was filled with a cast of characters for Character Day, with creative choices from Family Guy to Ratatouille. Students also joined in on morning competitions between the grades and lunchtime karaoke battles.
Twin Day was the theme for Wednesday, with twins, triplets, quadruplets and more dressing alike. The faculty took this challenge to the next level by dressing like Adele de Biasi Pelz, our French teacher & 12th Grade Dean!
Wednesday ended with a favorite part of Spirit Week--the Lip Sync Battle between each grade and the faculty. Ask your students to give you the highlights!
We end the week with Decade Day today, and Spirit Day tomorrow. In all, this week led by our Student Government has brought so much fun and community-building to our week, and we are grateful for all their work!
