    Spirit Week to open with Theme Day Monday

    Each year, every class chooses a theme that relates to their grade’s color. This year, freshmen are “Warning/Under Construction”to correspond with orange, sophomores are “Superheroes”to go with red, juniors are “Yellow Submarine” to match their yellow class color and seniors are “Survival of the Fittest,” to go with green. However, seniors will dress in 1990s fashion and save their theme for their class float and spirit dance on Friday.
