Snowcoming Celebration

Dress Up Days!

Next week we will begin our Snowcoming 2021 Celebration by taking part in some “back to normal” dress up days. Show your class spirit by dressing up each day next week!

Monday: Remember when you used to sleep in each day during quarantine, celebrate getting back to normal by wearing your pajamas!

Tuesday: Wishing for the good old days of summer and crowded beaches? Wear your school appropriate beach attire and pretend the sun is shining again!

Thursday: Dress up in your favorite College attire to celebrate one of our good old fashion dress up days.

Friday: Dress up in your Blue and White to finish off the week in our classic style.

Spirit Shirts on sale now!

Get your class spirit shirts!!  Order forms are in the office – only $12.00 each.

Hey there, 9th and 10th graders!!

Since this year is still not quite back to normal, we have to get creative with the Freshmen and Sophomore class fundraiser–which is usually just a candy-bar sale the earns about 8 cents and results in boxes of candy laying around melting into carpets and backseats all around town. So, Ms. Carlson and Mrs. Wolcott are combining Spirit Week with your fundraisers, meaning you’re going to have some fun while making your class some cash.

The Plan: Sophomores vs. Freshmen Spirit Competition Spirit Shirt Sales: Whichever class sells more spirit shirts will win the profit of the Seniors’ and Juniors’ sales. All that extra dough could be deposited to your grade’s account, which goes toward planning your prom and other cool stuff!

Penny War: Penny war jars will be out during shirt sales. You can either add pennies to your own class’ jar for profit, or add dollar bills to the opposing class’ jar to work as deductions from the other grade’s total. Shirt sellers will encourage students buying shirts to donate their change from the sale to the cause. Pennies=profit, cash=deductions…be ruthless.

Dress Up Days: The competition will run during Snow-coming Spirit week, which is the week of Monday, March 8 through Friday, March 12. Whichever class has better participation during the four dress-up days will earn “dollars” toward their amount each day…so go all out!
