Specifics released about Winter Royalty week
(Friday, Dec. 18, 2015)
If you see high school students dressed in their pajamas on Tuesday, Jan. 5 when returning from holiday break, it is not because they overslept. It is because it is officially Winter Royalty Spirit Week.
Spirit Days are as follows: Tuesday is “Pajama Day,” Wednesday is “Senior Citizen Day,” Thursday is “Squad Day,” and Friday is “Student Section Day.”
As with Homecoming, there will be daily judging and prizes awarded for the best costumes.
The events for Friday, Jan. 8 include a candidate video at 8 a.m. that will be shown to the high school student body as well as members of the candidates’ families. There will also be a pep rally in the new gym at the end of the school day.
According to Cyndi Circle, Student Council sponsor, “There will be range of characters in the lineup, which will include the candidates.”
That evening, the Winter Royalty crowning will occur after the boys’ varsity basketball game versus Rock Creek. The candidates include Devon Jones, Carlie Thompson, Kolton Kirkwood, Kenzie Kriss, Taylor Martin, and Mariah Cook. Last year’s royalty, Greg Larson and Payton Rickel, will return for the ceremony.
On Saturday, Jan. 9, StuCo is sponsoring a Winter Formal dance from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. in the commons area. The cost is $3 per person or $5 per couple.
