The Annual "Battle for the Holy Grail" spirit competition between SGS and Northwest Christian is this Friday, January 18 at NWC. The theme is The 1960s, and $5 spirit packs (groovy glasses, bandanas, peace signs) are available to purchase at lunch on Thursday, Jan. 17 from Mark Rickard. Students who have ordered tie-dyed T-shirts will get them Thursday afternoon or Friday morning to wear that day. Plus, please send in new or gently used childrens/teens clothing for the Teen & Kid Closet charity that both schools will be supporting this week, or bring clothes to the game. Representatives of Teen & Kid Closet will collect donations and serve as judges of the spirit competition.
On Friday, there will be a K-12 Pep Rally in ESAC to preview our dance, then students can stay after school to work on decorations and face painting. A free bus for students in grades 6-12 will leave SGS to go to NWC at 4:30pm -- parents must sign the waiver on PowerSchool and identify whether their student will be riding the bus back to SGS after the competition or will be picked up at NWC. Cost for students to attend the games is $4 (adults are $6), and food is available at the concessions stand.
Holy Grail basketball games begin at 3:00pm with the girls JV game, followed by boys JV at 4:30pm, girls varsity at 6:00pm, and boys varsity at 7:30pm.
