As winter break rapidly approaches the school likes to come together and do a spirit week.   On Monday students rolled out of bed and right to school, supporting their favorite pajamas.  The outfits ranged from footie pajamas all the way to slippers and sleep masks.  During lunch in the commons eight kids, two per grade, participated in a cinnamon roll eating contest. The goal was to fully eat 16 mini cinnamon, and be the first one to do it.  The juniors took home the win for day one.

Day two was Santa’s workshop, and Santa hats sprinkled the school.  In the pointe eight more students competed in a Wrap Battle.  The objective of the game was to dress someone in wrapping paper, and in the end the crowd voted for the winner.  After going down the line the seniors were named winners.

On the third day kids showed up in flannels and boots to go along with the lumberjack theme.  In the Pointe a fashion show was put on to raise money for Fashion for Funds.  Eight Disney characters paraded down the runway with their matching milk carton to receive donations to Doernbecher.  John Kim dressed as Buddy from Elf,  Mazy Draheim appeared as Belle from Beauty and the Beast, Ryan Napoli attend as Woody from Toy Story along with his partner in crime Buzz Lightyear, played by Anthony Baltazar, and Jessica Classen dressed as Jessie to complete the trio, Kenna Levi looked the part for Anna from Frozen, Accompanied by her sister Elsa, played by Kara Hix, and finally Maddie Prater appeared as Tinkerbell from Peter Pan.  Overall the group raised money  for the good cause.

On Thursday students came clad in their warmest coats and fuzziest hats to show of their spirit–they walked into school as if they were about to hit the slopes.  In the commons, a gingerbread building contest took place. Our high schoolers had a blast decorating and building gingerbread houses.

Friday was ugly sweater day, adn students came to school dressed in their worst sweaters. They last school day of 2017 was filled with many creative and comedic sweaters; Christmas lights, animals, and even mirrors adorned ugly sweaters. During lunch, there was an ugly sweater competition that kids could participate in.

This year’s spirit week was a huge success. Thanks to everyone who helped plan the events and participated in the festivities!
