Spirit Week

Hello Friends,

So, Spirit Week! It’s a big deal here at my new school. We started planning things roughly two months before this week. We practiced songs, took polls on themes, created design sketches for our “decks”, created banners to explain our theme. The week or so before, we have a banner reveal day to showcase each grade’s deck theme.

The weekend before is a big creative event where they build the “decks”, which is a physical background. I’ll show them a little bit later on in the post.

Each day was a themed costumed day. We had an hour or so long assembly each day, where they each sang a class song, skits, cheerleaders performed dances, etc. ASB pulled together a pretty amazing week.

Day 1: Zoo/Tourist

I borrowed a friend’s lion onesie. It was comfy and cozy, and best of all had pockets!

But I think the real hero of the day was my department chair, who came as……..a dinosaur!!

Day 2: Pajama Day

I wore my christmas flannel but somehow forgot to take a pic. But my department chair and I were opposites in both our flannel and robe colors, but his zombie slippers were the best!

For some reason on Day 3: I only took pictures on Snapchat and forget to save them. Whoops!

Day 4: “Er Day” Anything that ends in er, which ran the gamut of reindeer, Easter, nerdy teacher (me!) a character from Stranger things etc.

 My favorite part is that a student dressed up as me!

On Friday it was rep your deck day. One of our mentors pulled together shirts and we all matched. It was pretty great. He is a picture of us in front of our amazing deck.

The freshman were Candyland.

Sophomores were Wizard of Oz, Juniors were Battlestar Galactica, and the Seniors were my absolute favorite as Lilo and Stitch.

The decks were pretty amazing. In fact the whole week was pretty amazing. I’m looking forward to next’s years spirit week as I will actually know what to expect this time.

How was your week?
