School Spirit Week
Valhalla Center Students Celebrate School Spirit
Students and teachers at SWBOCES Valhalla Center capped off Spirit Week with a special school-wide breakfast on Sept. 27.
The hearty fare included French toast casserole, cinnamon buns, muffins, fruit and more. Everyone was asked to wear clothing that is blue and white – the school colors – on that day.
“I want to thank all my students who have done magnificent this week,” Principal Leslie Handler said. “You guys were spectacular and everybody did a great job. So now we get to do my favorite thing, which is to eat.”
Ms. Handler, who made the French toast dish, thanked all the staff members who brought food in for the breakfast.
This is the second year in a row the Valhalla Center has celebrated Spirit Week. The other days were mix-and-match day, sports day, crazy hat day and pajama day.
Fourteen-year-old R.J. James of Peekskill said he enjoyed pajama day the most. He donned his SpongeBob SquarePants pajamas for the occasion. “I think SpongeBob is funny,” he said.
Seventeen-year-old Jay Zaia, whose home district is Katonah-Lewisboro, was also partial to pajama day. He wore a long-sleeve Dallas Cowboys T-shirt and New York Giants pajama pants. “I got to wear my comfy clothes,” he said.
