Circling around school spirit

Van Orin Grade students (from left) Lauren Chasteen, Ed Fry, Liam Indigo and Ava Williams show some tricks with their Hula hoops during Friday morning’s Love and Loyalty Day activities at their school. Students and staff started this week, their first week of school, by celebrating Spirit Week. Each day had a different slogan and color scheme associated with setting a great foundation for the rest of the school year. Other daily themes for the week included friendship, teamwork and unity, clean environment, and wisdom and learning.
