Spirit Week!

Margaret Paul
Dear Families,
It’s S-P-I-R-I-T WEEK! It is unequivocally the most favorite week in the high school! Each February our Student Government plans a week of silliness and fun for students and faculty. It is such a special part of our high school experience! 
This year, our Student Government team has done an exceptional job in imagining a hybrid Spirit Week that fosters fun and belonging across our physical and Zoom school spaces. So first, a shout out to this amazing team, led by Student Government sponsor Ann Carroll:
President & Director of Community: Ajahni ‘21
Director of Communications: Dylan ‘21
Director of Programming: Gwen ‘21
Director of Social Justice: Marcus ‘21
Junior Executive: Margaret ‘22
2021 Reps: Cole & Pearl
2022 Reps: Emma & Bella
2023 Reps: Leah & Ciara
2024 Reps: Kate & Zoë
They have put so much creativity into this week, and have used all of their motivational and organizational skills to get their grades involved and invested. Well done Student Government!
So, how have we spent the week? We have had grade level competitions with costumes each day . . . from Era days to Twin matchups to a blast of red on the Zoom screen for LREI spirit at our Wednesday all school meeting. Each moment is a reminder that we are one high school community, linked across the spaces!

Students (and Faculty) have also participated in grade-level competitions--Geography bees, Jeopardy rounds, and of course, our annual, EPIC lip sync competition! This is a renowned assembly for the high school, and this year did not disappoint! 
Our students are so incredibly talented! This year, each grade put together a lip sync video, which allowed for our performers and film producers to shine in a whole new way. We can’t possibly capture the talent and hilarity of this assembly for you in this short note, but it was a highlight of the week, and truly fostered community in the high school like no other event can! Ask your kids to share the videos with you! 

Throughout this week--both in Zoom spaces and in the building--students and teachers have found a greater sense of community and connection. These moments matter in the life of the high school, and we are so thankful for all the effort and participation to make it happen!
