MS Spirit Week Brings Out School Pride and Holiday Spirit
Julian Corbett

A very festive Spirit Week brought out the cheer in the members of the Middle School this week. With activities like CGPS trivia, Mad Libs and seasonal arts and crafts, Spirit Week brought a little extra fun and excitement to the school day this week. Homerooms designed holiday Zoom backgrounds, and students competed to find and wear the ugliest holiday sweater. And in the evenings, a virtual reading of A Christmas Carol by faculty and staff as well as a family game night brought together families across the Middle School.

Head to “Photos of the Week” to see photos from activities and celebrations throughout the week!
