This week the girl’s basketball team had some home games (hence the spirit week). Thursday we had a pep rally in preparation. In my opinion, it was the best pep rally that has happened at Togiak school. (Music REALLY helps.) It was one of those times when I thought, “Oh, I’m glad I’m a student council advisor.” The best part of the whole pep rally was that Mike (the other advisor) and myself really didn’t do much at all. The students planned, prepared, and pulled it off (other than the shopping that Mike and I did for the supplies). To top it off, I felt like our student body was a little more interested and spirited than usual.
Tuesday was Valentine’s Day. Tim and I kept it pretty simple. I quietly hung hearts from the ceiling in front of his classroom door before school started. He quietly “heart-attacked” my classroom door while I was in PE class. Tim’s middle school students helped cut and decorate hearts for me. Apparently, our last name is spelled “Philliphs”. I laughed to see that spelling on over half the hearts.
