Spirit Week 2014!


Resurrection Spirit is in full gear and students are enjoying a high energy Spirit Week!  The week kicked off on Monday, September 29 with our Fall Pep Rally and continued with a morning Senior Tailgate followed by our annual Walk-a-thon on Tuesday, September 30.   

Thank you to all of the students, parents and supporters who helped make the Walk-a-thon a huge success!  We exceeded our monetary goal by raising almost $35,000!  Students also met the participation goal of 95% and have earned the day off on Friday, October 10

Spirit Week continues with the following theme days: Sports Day on Wednesday, October 1, Throwback Thursday on October 2 and Decades Day on Friday, October 3.  Go Bandits!
