A year ago this event was cancelled because of a major gymnasium repair. It was as if the whole school tried to make up for what was missed last year. The students at John Stark dressed up with lots of spirit.
Day 1: Frozen was the theme, the seniors had decorated their hallway as the Town of Arendelle over the weekend so when the school came in dressed up as the cast and characters from Frozen it all made sense.
Day 2: was Twin Day so many variations…a group of teachers got into this day and all dressed up as Things from Dr. Seuss.
Day 3: was Holiday sweater and Crocs and Socks – this might have potentially been my favorite day, so many varieties of holiday sweaters brought smiles to everyone – light up vests, snowman and Santas all over the place.
Day 4: was cartoon character Day – academic classes joined up to do the cast and characters from different shows. Here is a forensic class dressed as Bobs Burgers
Throughout this week each class competed in what is called a Penny War – classes want to get as many pennies as possible, but the catch is that anything that is not a penny counts against the totals. The seniors were taking the lead for most of the week, but on Day 4 a single freshman student dropped of 2700 pennies. In total the classes raised $583 from the Penny Wars and will be donating that money to the local Food Pantries of Weare and Henniker.
