Students Life:

Student Council declares days throughout the year to be "Spirit Days" when students are encouraged to show their school spirit by dressing up in a particular theme. There are many Green and Gold days before varsity sports matches, but also holiday themes, dress like your favorite teacher, twin day, crazy hair day, etc. Some events are very competitive in hopes of winning prizes such as iPods, gift certificates, candy baskets, DVD players or items that parents may donate for these fun days.
