From December 11-15, our annual Winter Spirit Week for Middle and Upper schoolers included themed dress-up days, lively challenges, festive activities, and a race to the finish line of the fall semester and the start of the holiday break.
Throughout the week, students participated in Cozy Pajama Day, Sunday in December Day, Dress Like a Teacher Day, Dress to Unimpress Day, played intramural sports, and decorated cookies.
Viewpoint's Student Council also hosted a Challenge Week in response to the expressed desire for more grade-level competition. The week kicked off with a series of challenges, where participants competed to earn points for both their grade level and themselves. Trophies and bragging rights awaited those with the most points at the end of the week, with additional points granted for displays of creativity and quality.
"Spirit Week is an excellent way to kick off the end of the semester. With everyone looking forward to Winter Break, it provides a fun and engaging opportunity to foster community here on campus," shared Laurel Eith ’24 and Student Council Secretary.
The week wrapped up with an end-of-season sports assembly, where students received recognition for their active participation and notable accomplishments in Fall sports.
“Spirit weeks are truly a special time here. Not only are students so excited to dress in the daily attire themes and show their creativity, but the campus also is abuzz with exciting activities, treats, friendly competitions, and all around happy spirits,” said Julia Strull, Assistant Head of Middle School. “It’s a chance for teachers and students to have fun together and celebrate all their hard work.”
As the campus settles into the holiday break, Spirit Week stands as a testament to the shared enthusiasm, camaraderie, and celebration that characterize the Viewpoint experience. We look forward to the additional shared moments of joy in the upcoming semester.
