Patriots Spirit Day and Door Decorating Contest

posted Feb 5, 2018, 8:14 AM by Tamara Moores   [ updated Feb 5, 2018, 8:26 AM ]

To help support our New England Patriots in the Superbowl we had a spirit day and door decorating contest.  Each class decorated their door.  Four judges picked a winner.  Children were also encouraged to wear their patriots garb or red, white and blue colors. The results of the doors were so amazing only one winner couldn't be named, so co-champions where named as well as a runner up. The co-champions won an extra PE and art class.  The runner up received an extra recess.
