SOME School Spirit!

Lake Myra Staff Photo on Wednesday, Fashion Disaster Day

Ya'll, Dr. Seuss' birthday celebration last week was fun and wacky but I'm beat! So much authentic enthusiasm for the IditaRead by teachers and students was so awesome to witness and watch.  Here are few more pics from the famous Book Character Day on Friday...with 100% staff participation! Woot-woot!!!. This year, a new tradition was entries! The winning team received a 90 minutes lunch off-campus (since our school is 15 minutes from any town, extra time for travel is included).  I seriously don't know how winners were decided because all teams looked A.MA.ZING!

And the winner is........
First Grade - Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes - FIRST PLACE

Student Support Team - The -iliciousesses - RUNNER UP

Kindergarten - Miss Bindergarten Goes to Kindergarten - RUNNER UP

3rd Grade - Alice in Wonderland - RUNNER UP
Specialists - Charlotte's Web - RUNNER UP

2nd Grade - Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - RUNNER UP

Admin & Office Staff - The Wizard of Oz 
AIG & Math Coach - The Hunger Games & Gooney Bird Greene
4th Grade - Fancy Nancy - RUNNER UP

Congratulations, 1st Grade! "It's All Good!"

And ya'all, I'm super bummer that I didn't get a group picture of the 5th grade team...they were goddesses from Greek Myths...and they looked....well, like goddesses!

    1. White tag board, cut in the form of a wrap-around shoe, held together with yarn tied like laces. Shoes painted with tempera paint. You can do it, be creative!

  13. Hi Lindsey,
    I have a freebie in my TpT store on how to make a teacher costume for the Pete the Cat book. If you search, by the category on the left, Fun Stuff, it will come up and you can download it for free. Thanks, Jen
