Spirit week’s goal is to excite and unite students for the homecoming game on Oct. 13. Fall break is the week prior to the Homecoming game, the normal time for spirit week. The date of the homecoming game could not be changed, so students are getting in the spirit a little earlier.

Tues. Oct 3: TROPICAL TUESDAY

Grady got into a tropical spirit on Tuesday. Student Government organized a luau during all three lunches. They offered limbo with prizes and hula hooping. For students who did not want to dress tropical, twinning was also an option.

Seniors Genesis Williams and Haylee Hills twinned and dressed tropical to get in the Grady spirit.

Mr. Howard joined in the luau fun and tried the limbo.

Wed. Oct 4: CROSS DRESS DAY

A Grady Spirit week tradition, students cross dress and often poke fun of other gender stereotypes.  

While Junior Franky Fernandez already switched out of his dress, he did get to take a picture with the “new girl” Robert Mobley.
