‘A December to Remember’ winter spirit week takes place Dec. 9-13. The week is inspired by classic holiday songs and movies such as “Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer,” “Silent Night” and “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” Students and teachers can participate in the spirit days to get into the  holiday spirit.

“The spirit days are actually super unique because they’re all a holiday song,” senior Savanna Bergquist, student body historian, said. “For themes we try to coordinate all the dress up days in order to keep it simple and easy to understand.”

Monday, Dec. 9

To start the week off, students will dress up for the ‘Silent Night’ theme and wear their pajamas and comfortable clothing. 

“I am very excited for pajama day because I get to have a lazy day at school and can relax,” Tyler Freed, sophomore, said. “I like to wear my fuzzy clothes.”

Tuesday, Dec. 10

For ‘The Sweater Outside is Frightful’ day, students will wear their ugliest sweaters. 

“I am looking forward to ugly sweater day because I have a great ugly sweater,” sophomore Jacob Saletta, class vice president, said. “ I am also looking forward to pajama day because I am lazy.”

Wednesday, Dec. 11

Students can wear any shirt from anywhere out of state for the ‘Joy to the World’ spirit day. 

“I’m excited for the out of state shirt day because I can show my love for New York,” Ryan Peralta, freshman, said.

Thursday, Dec. 12

On ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” students have two dress up options. They can dress in either extreme winter wear or dress up as a baby. 

Friday, Dec. 13

To finish off our week we have ‘Time for Toys & Time for Cheer’. On this day, students will dress up like their favorite toy or wear holiday colors and hats. The Performing Arts assembly is also on Friday, Dec. 13. Orchestra, band, choir, theatre, guitar and other performing arts at the school will participate in the assembly.
