For Skittles Day, each grade has been assigned a color (listed below) and students are encouraged to wear something of that color in their outfit.

6th Grade - Yellow

Please note: During Spirit Week, if a student’s outfit proves to be a distraction or is deemed otherwise inappropriate, the faculty reserves the right to ask the student to remove the distracting component of the outfit or change clothing entirely. In addition, an important distinction should be made between hats, which are approved for certain days and do not cover the face, and masks, which cover the face and will not be allowed on any days.
While faculty will not earn points for dressing up, they are nonetheless encouraged to do so in order to enhance the overall spirit during Spirit Week.
