WAITSBURG-Preschool through fifth grades had fun dressing up for spirit week. From October 24 through 28, students and teachers participated in Animal Print, Tie-dye, Crazy Sock, and Disney Day, ending Friday with Cardinal Spirit Days.
On Monday, October 31, the high school held its Halloween assembly. The students played various minute to win it games and competed in a costume contest. Erik Araya as Jesus and Mr. Kiefel as Beetlejuice won best costumes. In the minute to win it competitions, seniors Hendrix Groom and Sarabeth McGowen won the toilet paper mummy event. Junior Jayce Gleason won at cup stacking and senior Monte Pettichord blew his spider across the gym floor with a straw in record time. Junior Blake Benevides was a winner after he dropped an Oreo from his forehead into his mouth ahead of his competitors.
Due to rain, the middle school student walk-a-thon, scheduled for Halloween afternoon, was moved from the football field to the high school gym. Students, many dressed in Halloween costumes, fulfilled pledges for the number of laps they walked. The money raised will benefit the middle school ASB activities.
Elementary students dressed in costumes walked through the high school classrooms and received treats.
