Spotlight on Spirit Week

This week at Kennett Middle School is Spirit Week! The culminating event will be the highly anticipated Students vs. Faculty Basketball Game on Friday, March 4, 2016 at 7:00pm. Tickets are $5 per individual or $10 per family. During Spirit Week, which is sponsored and organized by the Kennett Middle School Student Council, there is a special theme for each day.

Monday (2/29) – Happiness Day: Wear the brightest, happiest clothes that you can find in your closet. There will be a happiness-themed photo booth for students (and teachers!) at all lunches. Also, as a surprise for the students as they walked in this morning, teachers prepared happy quotes on Post-it Notes and put them on students’ lockers! This day was planned as an early celebration of International Happiness Day which is on March 20, 2016.

Tuesday (3/1) – Twin Day: Find a friend (or group of friends) to dress alike with today!

Wednesday (3/2) – Color Wars: Each grade has a different color – show your spirit by dressing in as much of your grade’s color as possible! sixth grade: blue, seventh grade: green, eight grade: black

Thursday (3/3) – Throwback Thursday: Reminisce about the past and dress up like you belong in your favorite decade (the 60s, 70s, 80s or 90s!)

Friday (3/4) – Kennett Middle School Spirit: Show your Kennett Middle School pride by wearing Blue and White! And then join us at the Student-Faculty basketball game tonight!

In addition to each day having a theme, Kennett Middle School’s first ever Throwback Thrift Shop will be open for business during all lunches! The Throwback Thrift Shop offers jerseys, warm-ups, and uniforms from former Blue Demon sports teams for $1 per item or 6 items for $5.
