Friday Is Kindness Week SPIRIT DAY
CP&PKR - In the Kindness Week email we sent out last week, we accidentally referred to the Kindness Week Spirit Day as a "Kindness Week Dress of Choice." Friday, February 12, IS a Spirit Day (alternate top, uniform bottom), and NOT a Dress of Choice Day. Students may either wear red or pink in honor of Kindness Week, or an American Academy spirit top with their uniform bottoms. The next Dress of Choice Day is not until Friday, February 26. Sorry for any confusion!
