Some area high schools/ colleges are preparing for spirit week and some have it the first Friday of October. 

Spirit week is always a good time and the kids, especially freshman, love it. Themed days such as nerd day, red, white and blue day, super hero day and of course pride day. The kids get to dress up in crazy get ups. Adds for a bit of excitement to the books and learning that is the regular. My little buddy Alivia and her school are in spirit week and today is "Red White and Blue Day". Looks fun.

Remember homecoming for the Grizzlies is the weekend of the 27th, It kicks off with events that start that Monday then there is the Dropkick Murphys show at the Adams Center on the 24th, then the game on the 27th.
