Spirit Week

Next week will be the Fayette County Boys and Girls Basketball Tournament.   A few of us thought it would be a good idea to have a spirit week for the cause and also tie it in with Valentines Day. We also have our annual "Jump Rope for Hearts" event for the American Heart Association.

February 13 - 17


Spirit Week Activities:

Monday:  Super Hero T-shirt day -   Wear a t-shirt with your favorite super hero on it

Tuesday: Red Out Day -   Dress for success and wear red to support women's heart health.

Wednesday: Crazy hair and crazy socks day -  Show your crazy on your feet and on your head. 

Thursday: Red and Black Red Devil Day -  Encourage students to come out to the game an cheer on the girls for the 2:00 pm game and the boys for 8:00 pm game. As many staff as possible set aside Thursday night to go catch the game and wear your basketball jerseys from Collins days gone by. If you do not have one see Coach Gutshall as he has a few left. 

Friday: Grade level decade day competition -   5th grade your decade is the 50's, 6th grade is the 60's , 7th grade is the 70's and we all look forward to see the 8th grade staff with the big hair look of the 80's . Which grade level can get highest amount of participation for their decade?
