Virtual Spirit month for the CCUSD district

Title (Dublin Core)

Virtual Spirit month for the CCUSD district

Description (Dublin Core)

Our school district, Cave Creek Unified, only has seven schools- 5 elementary, 1 middle and 1 high school. The kids have been out since March 16th, which was a week before Spring Break. Most of the schools do various spirit weeks throughout the year, and most of the schools do some sort of spirit week towards the end of the year. The Cactus Shadows HS PTO (partner teacher organization) put together a series of dress up days/events to do during Teacher Appreciation week and the rest of the year. All of the schools are encouraged to participate and they will post photos to the website. Things like this remind me that I live in a really close knit community which is very comforting. It also reminds me that all of the kids are missing out on some of the best parts of the school year. My senior is missing biggies: graduation, prom, Sr. ditch day, etc, but my Sophomore and 8th grader are also missing out on fun stuff, not to mention their education. The elementary kids are often forgotten in all of this, other than their antics during zoom meetings, but they too are missing out on fun end of the year performances, promotions, parties and all of the fun stuff that kids remember. Teacher Appreciation Week is also going to be virtual, and while I know teachers don't teach because of the rewards of teacher appreciation week, they all value the kind words and gestures every year. I hope lots of students participate, and make the most of virtual spirit days.
