Delia School students started their second semester off with a ‘Spirit Week’ including a Thursday Tropical Day. ECA Review/Submitted

To start the second semester at the Delia School off with a blast and to motivate the students and staff, the Students Union planned a “Spirit Week.”
Tuesday was Jersey Day, Wednesday was Tropical Day, Thursday was Pajama (PJ) and Pancake Breakfast Day and Friday was Hillbilly Day.
On Thursday, the staff cooked pancakes, sausage, hash browns and served fruit for the entire school, bus drivers and community members.
The week was a fantastic way to kick off the new semester and boast the school spirit.
This week the students have had a short presentation by the Heart and Stroke Foundation to kick off their Jump Rope Event.
In the past, the school has consistently raised about $3000 for the foundation.
This year it will be the 35th anniversary for the Heart and Stroke Foundation and the school has set their goal as $3500.
The students will be participating in jumping activities and hoops for heart on Fri. Feb. 17, all in an effort to teach the students the importance of keeping their hearts healthy.
