House Wars - Spirit Points Update!

Our school wide competition this year is called HOUSE WARS!

Your child’s homeroom will be working together to earn Spirit points for your House!

What are spirit points? And how do you earn them?

Spirit Points are earned by student and staff participation in our Spirit Days. Peer leaders will

come around to homerooms on spirit days to tally up the number of participants in each house.

Winners will be announced after each spirit day and 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place houses will receive SPIRIT POINTS.

As of 10/10 here is our Spirit Points update! Stay tuned for upcoming spirit days!
