Spirit Week brings out creativity in students, staff

From Sept. 5 to Sept. 8, students and staff showed how creative they could get with school spirit by participating in Spirit Week. Each day was given a theme, such as Barbie vs. Ken Day and Anything But a Backpack Day. The week was meant to lead up to the Homecoming Dance originally scheduled for the night of Sept. 8. However, the dance was postponed to a later date.
