Seventh through 12th-graders spent the day celebrating in a different fashion, since the school’s Snow Week celebrations overlapped with the Valentine’s Day holiday.
All week long, the high school students participated in dress-up days and various activities to celebrate Snow Week.
On Friday, students were asked to wear Valentine’s Day colors, and some students in each grade competed against each other in class Olympics. K-W’s FCCLA also sold carnations throughout the day, which is one of the organizations fundraisers. Some of the different events were tug-of-war, Hungry-Hungry hippos, half-court shots and another activity that tested students speed and agility.
To wrap-up the Snow Week celebration, there was a pepfest in the gym, where the girls and boys basketball, wrestling and robotics teams shared important milestones of their seasons.
