Homecoming Week 2013 is almost in the books!
As a recap entering Friday, here are the highlights from a wonderful week at Mt. Spokane:
Monday started with our senior class taking their traditional bus picture that will hang in the commons. After a wonderful presentation from Jostens regarding savoring the senior year, students grouped together on a beautiful October afternoon. As the dress-up day for students and staff was a tribute to America, it was amazing to see how many red, white and blue shirts were in the hallways!
Tuesday was “Twin Day” at MSHS, and the combinations of shirts and complete ensembles were hilarious! Athletically, our varsity volleyball team started Homecoming Week in fine fashion as they dispatched North Central in three straight games.
Wednesday brought an important event in our school’s plan to continually pursue college and career readiness. Each Mt. Spokane junior, and many sophomores, took the PSAT to increase their capacity regarding test-taking specific to the SAT. “Wildlife Wednesday” was an interesting twist to our festive week, and camouflage clothing was definitely present in and around Mt. Spokane! To end a great day, our soccer team took to our home pitch and posted a shut-out win against Shadle Park, (Click HERE for details on the match!) and our Varsity Boys and Girls Cross-Country teams ran perfect races against Rogers at Siemers Ranch.
“Thrift Shop” Thursday invited the most diverse attire ever witnessed at a high school. From tweed jackets and glacier glasses to parachute pants and zebra sweaters, nothing surprised me by the end of the day. While our varsity volleyball team had yet to finish their match at University, (they’re playing as I’m blogging!), the girls and coaches were excited to take-on their 3A rival!
Friday arrives tomorrow and will mark the end of a wonderfully creative Homecoming week. (Thank you, ASB!) Students will wear their Wildcat gear in a show of school pride, and our cardinal and navy will cover the gymnasium for an energetic assembly that, I’m sure, will be enjoyable for all. We will end our week with a “double-dip” of athletics as our Varsity Soccer team travels to take on North Central at Pacific Park. Match time is 4:00pm, and we would love to see our Wildcat fans in attendance! After the soccer match, the Wildcat Varsity Football team takes on University High School at Joe Albi Stadium. Kickoff is at 5:00pm! If you plan on attending the football game, be sure to watch the final performance of our award winning band. . . the halftime show is worth the price of admission!
Thanks to everyone for a great week! I’m constantly reminded, each day, of how fortunate I am to work at Mt. Spokane. Truly, I have the best job in America!
