SPIRIT FRIDAYS – Due to the busyness of spring, we no longer have spirit WEEK, we have spirit FRIDAYS! See below to find the themes for each Friday and come in your crazy wear:

  • April 28- Disney Day: Bust out your best princess dress, slap on some Mickey ears, or wear a Star Wars t-shirt. As long as it’s Disney, it’s legit today. Reminder that masks are not allowed as part of a school safety issue, but you could wear them on your head/forehead.
  • May 5- Dollar Dress Day: You know what they say, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. As regularly scheduled, this will be a dollar dress day. Bring a dollar, wear anything within the approved dollar dress standards. If you’ve already paid for the year, you’re set.
  • May 12- Celebrity Day: Come dressed as your favorite celebrity! Carry a stuffed animal in a handbag, do your hair in outrageous styles, bust our your best animal prints– the possibilities are endless. Again, please make sure that students are fully covered, even if you have to put a shirt or leggings underneath an outfit.
  • May 19- Single Color Day: Every year we have a color day, but we usually pick the color. This year, YOU pick the color. Do you own a lot of purple? Wear it all today! Are you a fan of chartreuse? Today’s your day to shine (literally). Your goal is simply to wear as much of one color as you can.

TURN IN THOSE LIBRARY BOOKS – The library in each building will close on Friday, May 5. Be sure to turn in your library books before that date to avoid fines!
