    The week beginning on January 8 was the week the Nemaha Central Middle School kicked off their spirit week. Spirit week is always started on the Monday of the week that NC plays their town rival, SPPS. Every day of spirit week is a different dress-up theme day. The sixth, seventh, and eighth grade are encouraged to dress up. The middle school class that has the highest percentage of students that dressed up that week wins candy and pop.

    The first day, Monday, the theme was college and professional sports teams. Students were dressed up showing off their jerseys, shirts, and other team apparel. On Tuesday, the theme was color war. For the color war, sixth grade had to wear white, seventh grade had to wear blue, and the eighth grade wore purple. The teachers had to incorporate all three colors. The color war day was its own competition, not included in the rest of the spirit week judging. Whichever class had the most students successfully dressed up with their color, would win an ice cream party. For Wednesday, the theme was way back Wednesday, and the students and teachers wore some pretty wacky and old-fashioned style clothing. Thursday was meant to be the Thunder spirit day because that was the day NC was going to play SPPS, but school was cancelled due to a snow day. The game and spirit day theme was rescheduled for January 22. Friday, after the snow day, was pajama day. Middle school students and teachers were dressed in their comfy pajamas to end the week the right way.

    Lilly Schultejans said, "It was fun and it was a good change from what we normally wear."

    On January 22, the highly anticipated game finally arrived. The middle school hallway was full of purple, blue, and all themed with Thunder spirit. It was by far the hardest day to judge, and it was great to see all of the students showing off their Thunder pride. There was also a pep rally to announce the winner of spirit week. The winner was sixth grade.

    Scores for spirit week are listed below:

    College and professional Day:  6th-71%, 7th-57%, 8th-38%

    Color War:  6th-74%, 7th-57%, 8th-24%

    Way Back When:  6th-68%, 7th-41%, 8th-10%

    Thunder Pride: 6th-24%, 7th-14%, 8th-29%

    Pajama Day:  6th-83%, 7th-58%, 8th-20%

    "It was very fun. Dressing up was very interesting," said Katelyn Ohlsen.

    Spirit week is a fun event that brings the middle school students together and encourages them to show school spirit.
