Holiday Count Down Fun

As the holidays approach, we are going to have some school spirit days. These days are optional for students to participate in if they wish. There is no money being collected. These are just for fun. Please do not go out to purchase anything new. We’re hoping to see lots of creativity with homemade items on these days.

Monday, December 13 – Ugly Holiday Sweater Day: wear a tacky/ugly holiday sweater or be creative and design your own tacky sweater.

Wednesday, December 15 – Holiday Hat Wednesday: Rock your favorite Holiday hat; wear a Santa hat, Elf hat, reindeer antlers, etc. or be super creative and design your own holiday hat.

Friday, December 17 – Merry Friday Morning: Just wake up and come to school in pajamas
