An annual event organized by Student Council’s spirit committee, Spirit Week is a week when students are encouraged to dress up.
Dress-up days include Tie-dye Day (Tuesday), Movie Theme Advisory Competition (Wednesday), Twin Day (Thursday) and Red and Black Day (Friday).
The Movie Theme Advisory Competition will include the middle school as well as the high school, with each advisory dressing up as characters from a movie. Head of high school Brooke Wells, head of school Lee Thomsen, director of special programs Joy Pangilinan and middle-school head Sandy Lyon are judging this competition; prizes will be awarded to the top three advisories.
The prizes for the advisory competition include Chipotle catering, cookies from the Cookie Connection and pizza, according to junior Nina Dym, chair of events.
Additionally, everyone who dresses up during Spirit Week will be counted by the spirit committee, and the class with the highest percentage of participants will win a pizza party.
For students who dress up the entire week, a few teachers will give extra credit: Latin teacher Jane Batarseh (homework pass), English teacher Jane Bauman (three points), English teacher Patricia Fels (two points), math teacher Patricia Jacobsen (five test points), biology teacher Kellie Whited (one lab point) and English teacher Brooke Wells (three points).
Time: Approximately 12:30 p.m.
Date: Friday, Oct. 14
There will be two games at the pep rally. First, students will give four fall-sports coaches dresses for Homecoming by wrapping streamers around them. The coach with the best dress will be chosen by cheering from the crowd.
The other game is modeled after the board game Hungry Hungry Hippos. One student lying down on a scooter will hold a basket, and another student will hold their legs, and push them into an area full of balls. The student on the scooter will collect balls in their basket.
NAHS Chalk Mural
Date: Friday, Oct. 14 but may be postponed due to rain
This year marks the 25th anniversary of SCDS’s Chalk Mural, and to celebrate, 10 previously chalked artists will be highlighted in the mural: Vincent Van Gogh, Wayne Thiebaud, René Magritte, Georgia O’Keeffe, Henri Matisse, Diego Rivera, Edward Hopper, Louis TIffany, Pablo Picasso and Giorgio de Chirico. The chalking was originally scheduled to begin at 7:30 a.m; however, because of the possibility of rain, it may be postponed. Final decisions on the time and date will be made Thursday, Oct. 13.
Time: 5 p.m., Friday, Oct. 14
Opponent: Valley Christian
Time: 6 p.m., Friday, Oct. 14
Opponent: Buckingham Christian
Senior Alexa Mathisen said she expects the varsity team to win since they easily won their previous game against Buckingham.
The JV team will have a more difficult game as they have lost to Valley Christian in the past, she said.
For the volleyball games, Dym will provide necklaces and face paint.
