Randolph Students Celebrate Virtual Spirit Week
Students and staff at Fernbrook, Ironia, Shongum, and Center Grove are turning an uncertain situation into an opportunity to find new ways to gather. Families have been participating in Spirit Week while students are away from their home away from home. The response has been overwhelming with dozens of photos being shared of students participating on social media. We are excited to see the tremendous wave of positivity online. This week, students have participated in team day, spirit wear day, crazy hair day, pajama day, spread kindness day, and super hero day just to name a few. Next week, families are encouraged to participate in new opportunities to help spread joy.

Director of Elementary Education Danielle Soldivieri is grateful for the success of Spirit Week and would like to encourage families to continue to participate in the coming weeks. “Although our school communities may not be physically together right now, our staff continue to get creative in their efforts to stay connected to their students and families. Though many have utilized social media for some time now, this has most recently become a venue through which our staff have come together to share the creative ways they are connecting with our learning community. These connections are critical for supporting the social, emotional, and academic needs of our students. Our first elementary virtual spirit week was a tremendous success and we can’t wait to see even more families participate in the coming weeks. I encourage everyone to join us in spreading positivity throughout our school community and beyond by joining us on both Twitter and Facebook."
We have included many of the photos that were shared on Twitter in an album to give our community 75 reasons to smile today. Families, if your child has participated in spirit week this week, please comment a photo or a quote below to help others see all of the amazing things happening in our homes during this time. For future spirit days, we encourage families to share their photos with #RandolphSchools on Twitter and Facebook to show #RandolphPride!
