Since Monday, the students have been roaming the halls in out-of-the- ordinary attire as part of Winter Carnival Dress Up Days. On Monday the dress up theme was “comfy cozy/Star Wars Day,” Tuesday was “blackout/toga day” and Wednesday was “class color/mismatch and crazy hair/princess and pirate day.” Today (Thursday) students can be seen taking part in “blue and gold/Simba/Fa­vorite Disney Character Day.”

The winning class of the Spirit Jug will be determined today at the pep as­sembly which will take place at 1:40 in the high school gym. The assembly will feature games in which the classes com­pete against each other in a quest for the Spirit Jug.

Winter Carnival activities will con­tinue this evening with a dance to be held in the cafeteria. Before the dance, the Winter Carnival King and Queen will receive their crowns during halftime of the girls varsity basketball game against Houghton Lake. The game will begin at approximately 7:30 p.m.
