This week Lowry High will show school spirit with a Fall Fest. Due to current world conditions, some students don’t attend school on the same days.
But the Leadership class thought of a solution. That can involve everyone, virtually. Students can dress up and post the picture to either Instagram or Twitter, and tag the leadership accounts. Student Body President Anjolie Karrer said leadership faced challenges this year.
“…we had the two different groups we didn’t know how we were going to do activities,” said Karrer.
There was a challenge of not wanting to have a past repetition of ideas. Ms. Julia Topholm faced those challenges this year.
“Challenges we faced while planning were trying something we had never done before and blending the old traditions with the new to create our Fall Fest Week,” said Topholm.
The week starts with Pajama Day/Breakfast Club Day where students can wear pajamas. This was inspired by “The Breakfast Club”.
The students crowned King and Queen of this year’s Fall Fest are Bailee Brinkerhoff and Anthony Peterson.
The following day is Harry Potter day where all grade levels wear the assigned color, then the next two days are theme inspired days, along with the Kahoot challenge and a video.
Fall Fest ends with the Friday Night Lights Blue and Gold Day where all students are allowed to dress up and post a picture on social media.
Although the hybrid schedule was a big obstacle, students still showed their school pride during Fall Fest.
“As a result of tackling those challenges, we had a great week with a lot of student and staff participation,” said Topholm.
