Spirit Week will take place during Catholic Schools week which begins Monday January 30 and ends Thursday February 2. Each day students dress up corresponding with the theme assigned for each day and the specific sub theme for their grade. Each grade is judged for their creativity and participation, earning points throughout the week. The grade with the highest tally of points by the end of the week is crowned the winner of spirit week.

Be creative with your costumes, but be mindful of your classmates. Do not bring any distractive props into the classroom. Wear appropriate accessories that go with the assigned theme of the day.

Don’t: have a twitter war.


Do not fight with other grades or students over social media. Inappropriate behavior on social media will have serious consequences (like writing five page apologies instead of going to the pep rally).

Do: be competitive… respectfully.


Spirit week builds a lot of excitement and competition between grade levels. Be sure to be competitive, but in a respectful manner.

Don’t: sabotage other grades locker room decorations.


Each grade decorates their locker room in order to win points in the spirit week competition. Do not take down or ruin decorations of another grades locker room. Be respectful to your sisters.

Do: pimp out your locker room.

Go all out when decorating your locker room. Be creative by bringing in fun props and decorations to make your locker room stand out to the judges.

Be sure to follow this guide for a fun and successful spirit week. Let the games begin.
