Spirit Week – A Central Tradition

For over 40 years, DuBois Central Catholic Middle and High School has designated a Spirit Week with proceeds going to the DuBois Area United Way. An entire week of spirited activity culminates in United Way Day on  Friday,  September 20. Senior High Student Council, under the leadership of John Ritsick and Lindsey Reiter are the facilitators of the activities. Mrs. Kate Kunkle is the faculty advisor.

Monday September 16 kicks off DCC’s annual middle and high school Spirit Week. Each day has a theme and students dress accordingly.

Monday is “Match-up Monday” where students can wear their favorite team apparel from Cardinal team wear to professional sports.

Tuesday  is “Too Tired Tuesday” and students can wear appropriate sleep or loungewear.

Wednesday is Mass day so students must wear dress code or dress up with business attire.

Thursday is “Tropical Thursday” so students can wear their best island wear!

Friday is United Way Day and students should dress for their class skits.

The theme this year is “Decades” and each grade’s skit focuses on an assigned decade. 6th grade will concentrate on the 1960’s; 7th grade is the 70’s; and 8th is the 80’s.

High school freshmen will present their skit using the 90’s; sophomores will be the early 2000’s. Juniors are the 2010’s; and finally, the seniors will use the year 2020.

Skits will be presented in the morning and afterwards everyone will have lunch on the soccer field. Students are asked to bring something to share for the picnic lunch.  Pizza will be provided.

  • 6th Grade – Drinks
  • 7th Grade – Drinks
  • 8th Grade – Drinks
