Middle School Spirit Week Brings Fun, Friendly Competition Home
This week, Middle School students participated in a variety of virtual Spirit Week activities. These events – spread across five days – encouraged friendly competition and provided an opportunity for students to connect from a distance. Each day also featured the option to dress in a fun and creative way.
The schedule for the week included the following:
Event: MFS Trivia via Kahoot! – Students played an interactive quiz on their devices via Kahoot!, a game-based learning platform that asks multiple choice questions in real time.
Dress: Twin Day
Event: Minute to Win It Contest – Participants selected one (or all!) of a series of challenges designed to be completed in a minute or less using household materials.
Dress: Crazy Hair Day
Event: Wake Up! MFS Talent Show – Students, faculty, and staff were invited to email videos or perform live.
Dress: Dress Your Best Day
Event: Red vs. Blue GooseChase – GooseChase is a scavenger hunt app that awards points upon the successful completion of missions. Students, divided into Red and Blue teams, searched around their houses/yards and took photos of people and items in many categories (someone wearing MFS gear, items of different colors, items starting with different letters of the alphabet, etc.).
Dress: Red or Blue
Event: Virtual MS Dance – Students submitted song requests in the days leading up to this event and joined a Zoom teleconference for an evening dance party.
Dress: Neon/Day Glo
