Spirit Week

We look forward to celebrating Spirit Week October 24-28! While we have designated days for Spirit Week, students also have the option of "Dressing Down" during Spirit Week. "Dress Down" Days give students an opportunity to express themselves as individuals; however, we feel that it is important that students still dress appropriately for school. You can find information about Spirit Week and our "Dress Down" Expectations below.

NOTE: Monday, October 24 is Picture Day. Students may wear jeans, but they must be in their GLOW polo (purple or yellow).
