Washington Street School hosted a Spirit Week, from Jan. 22-26, to officially kick off its Wildly Important Goal of “Unleash Your Best You!” Students will be working to reach a schoolwide goal of 10 million steps and 20,000 mindfulness minutes.
Spirit Week started with Mindful Monday, and students were encouraged to wear a shirt with a positive message and participate in a schoolwide Mindful Minute. Students wore their favorite sports team jersey for Team Tuesday. On “We’re Wild About Walking” Wednesday, students wore crazy socks and participated in a schoolwide walk activity. On Thursday, Principal John Stella read aloud “Have You Filled Your Bucket Today?” and students wore bucket hats to inspire kindness and completed a Thankful Thursday journal entry. Spirit Week concluded with Fitness Friday, and students wore their favorite athletic attire.
The building will continue to host Mindful Mondays, Walking Wednesdays, Thankful Thursdays and Fitness Fridays in order to reach their WIG. The hope is to reach the goal of 10 million steps by the school’s first Color Run on May 18.
