Spirit Week dress-up days kick off Monday, September 11, and include:  Monday –  Pajama Day; Tuesday – Country Club Day; Wednesday – Old Trends Day; Thursday –  Dress as Yourself in 50 Years Day; Friday– Red Pride. 

“PJ Day will forever be a favorite of mine,” said senior Abi Gadia. “Some may argue that it's overused, but I think it's a classic because sometimes people need a day to just roll out of bed and go to school.”

By participating in Homecoming dress-up days students can share the enthusiasm they have for the Homecoming Dance and game. These days are a fun way for students to step out of their comfort zone and just embrace the spirit. “Spirit days impact the school by fostering connections between peers in a memorable way. It breaks away from people's traditional busy academic schedules and gives an opportunity for everyone to participate in something schoolwide,” said Gadia. “Having Spirit Week is a good distraction from students' academic life.”

 Spirit Week is also important in other significant ways. It helps boost school spirit for the students and staff, but more importantly, it's a fun way for students to express themselves in ways one wouldn’t usually see. “It gives students a chance to have fun and connect with each other,” said Gadia. “It's very easy to get caught up in the stress of homework, studying, athletics, extracurricular activities and more, but Spirit Week helps to bring everyone closer together despite their busy schedules.”
