Students and staff of West Middle were hyped up about coming to school and preparing for the dance throughout the week of Nov. 29 due to Spirit Week.

The week was a success in uniting the people of West Jessamine Middle School in school spirit and getting them excited about school and the Winter Formal. There were many participants from both the students and teachers.

Spirit week lasted five days and consisted of Jersey/Hat Day (Monday), Twin Day (Tuesday), Tie Dye vs. Camo Day (Wednesday), 80’s Day (Thursday), and Color by Grade Day (Friday), which was red for sixth, white for seventh, and blue for eighth.

“Eighties Day was fun, I loved seeing all the teachers dressed up,” said Counselor Carrie Dziki. “It was really funny, in a good way.”

The idea for Spirit Week began when a student approached the principal, asking for a day where they could dress up like one of the teachers at the school. Sources of Strength worked hard to create an opportunity for people to express themselves, hence Spirit Week.

“I am very proud and it was a huge success,” said School Principal Matt Albertson. “I have been receiving emails from students with compliments and ideas for next year.”
