Spirit Week at Palo Alto High School is always one of the most highly anticipated weeks of the year, with Paly students from every grade dressing up each day, chanting their hearts out. From the energizing lunchtime rallies to the impressive spirit dances and floats, Spirit Week is no doubt a memorable event. The Paly Voice takes a look back at what made Spirit Week 2017 so unforgettable.
From the outside, Meredith Gyves and Jack Phillips look as though they have been good friends for a long while. They laugh and tease each other as old friends do, while reminiscing about Palo Alto High School back in the 1960s. Although Paly is where they met, their relationship did not begin as a friendship, but rather as a student-teacher relationship. Gyves was a high school student, and Phillips was her English teacher senior year.
