SENIOR TAKEOVER DAY!
A few lucky students had the opportunity to experience the trial and tribulations of teaching today, as staff gave control of their classes to seniors from Leadership. Could there be a future Ms. Hoffman, Mr. Jordan or Mr. Vazquez? Word around campus is that students were happy with their substitutes.
On "Messy Monday" we are planning to wear what some might call lazy clothes. For example: sweats, shorts, messy hair, and baggy shirts. On "Tie-dye Tuesday" we are planning to have people wear Tie-dye clothes, so expect to see very bright colors. On "Hawaiian Wednesday" we invite everybody to wear Hawaiian themed clothes, including Aloha shirts. On "Throwback Thursday" we are kicking it back to the times when you enjoyed the best of the 60's,70's,80's,90's, por favor, wear clothes representing an era. On " Friday Sports Day" you can wear any sporty clothes and all sports clothes are approved by administration.
For each day we expect to play a game. Here's what's planned for each day:
