Stone Ridge SDA Christian School’s Spirit Week

Stone Ridge Spirit Week 1The doldrums, when discussing physical science, refers to a belt of light winds or calms along the equator. The weather conditions experienced in these sections of the sea were devastating hazards to sailing ships. Now that ships are fitted with engines the doldrums aren’t so fearful, at least at sea. However, if you live in Duluth MN, in February it’s pretty easy to slip into a state of inactivity or stagnation. Many days may be too cold to go outside and play and a classroom of kids can start to get bored. A bored kid is not a receptive kid!

Mr. Carlson has found a way to navigate this annual impediment to learning by having Spirit Week. This year from February 10-13 the kids arrived at school dressed according to the day’s theme.

Stone Ridge Spirit Week2Monday was Pajama or backwards day. You could wear PJ’s (acceptable guidelines were sent home with the students ahead of time) or you could wear all your clothes in reverse for the day.

Tuesday was Hat or Shoes day. The more outlandish, outrageous or outstanding, the better. Same for your shoes, decorated or bedazzled, the wackier the better.

Stone Ridge Spirit Week3Wednesday was clash day; the perfect day to wear clothes that do not match! Or you could wear “all of one” that day, all one color, all stripes, or all polka dots.

Thursday was Occupation day, or Sports Day and you could dress up as you would for a future job, or dress in your favorite team’s colors.

Stone Ridge Spirit Week4Points were awarded every day for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place and on Thursday the grand prize winner for the week was chosen and awarded a $5 cash prize.

Hope the rest of your month is filled with warm blessings!
