September 5th (Friday) “COLLEGE SPIRIT WEAR DAY” – This Friday is college spirit wear day!  Do you or your family have a favorite college you like cheering for when watching sports on TV?  Maybe the college your parents attended?  Or maybe just a college you may be interested in attending?  Haven’t thought about it yet?  Now is the time!  If you don’t have a college shirt in your closet, ask your parents or other family members if they have a college shirt you can wear.  If you want your shirt to count for your class’ spirit count, make sure it has the college name or logo prominently displayed.

As part of our college to career program, Elitha Donner will feature different colleges throughout the school year.  Our students will learn interesting facts about colleges throughout the United States.  Need to clean out the closet or clean off those shelves?  Donate your college memorabilia or items to be used during our spirit rallies.
