On our last day of spirit week teachers and students grabbed a jersey, t-shirt or hat from their favorite sports team. School spirit week was a great way to "lift our spirits" and pump us up to beat the math test next week; or finish the school year strong. Everyone demonstrated school pride by exhibiting school colors, showing off wacky hats, dressing up silly or strutting team goods. We were the definition of PS 173 school spirit all day, all week, all year; "Together We Make A Difference."
Hawaiian shirt Day was a positive reason for PS173 to wear their brightest clothes. Whether it was fancy floral, polka dots or paisley, as long as the clothes had color and pizzazz, it was a perfect way to continue our spirit week. We were able to be social and energetic wearing our best and brightest garments, the most hideous shirts, the most outrageous outfit and getting students to contribute towards school pride while having a really good time.
When PS173 has wacky clothes day on the calendar, it's the perfect time to get silly with our students. Students love to play pretend, its an opportunity to get good giggles by being werid and they are reminded Silly is Good.
School pride day at PS173 is important because it sets the tone for our spirit week. When our students are involved in our spirit days, it demonstrates a passion for PS173 Pride that is immeasurable and contagious. We believe that school spirit translates into higher expectations of one’s self and surroundings, pushing for positive changes at school. There were several ways we showed our PS173 school pride today: wearing our PS173 t-shirts, rocking our school colors yellow and blue, and cheering during our days events. Engaging in these simple actions is great for our school community because it encourages a common bond between fellow students, faculty, and staff alike. Share in our PRIDE for PS.173.
We are entering a joyous and festive week marked by our spirit days. Crazy hat/hair day is the beginning of the many fun days to come. We asked the students to put on their silly hats or crazy hair styles and come to school. The atmosphere was exhilarating, teachers and students had fun with a day full of laughter and joy through our Mad hat/ hair creations.

When i got to the TOEC center it was cooler than i expected. I had so much fun dancing and goofing around in the cabin. I got a cabin with all my friends. I learned that cow are different than other animals, that most of the water we drink comes from the mountains and that most of the pollution we throw out ends up in the ocean. We did many fun activities like adding branches to a hut and my favorite the rope swing. The TOEC trip was fun because we played games, talked to each other and go to tell scary stories in the cabin.
