Since Hurricane Sandy caused three missed days of school this week, Cinnaminson High School officials have decided to change Spirit Week to later this month.
Principal Darlene Llewellyn said Spirit Week will move to the week of Nov. 26 with a pep rally to be held Nov. 30.
“Given the recent tragedy that has affected so many other New Jersey schools and communities, we should all be thankful to be so fortunate to still have a school and community to be spirited about,” Llewellyn said Wednesday.
The homecoming dance is still this Saturday night but the football game against Bordentown has been moved to Wednesday, Nov. 7.
There, the homecoming court will still be announced, Llewellyn said. The homecoming king and queen will be announced at a later time that is as of now undecided.
Staring Thursday, when students in the district go back to school, they can bring in food for the Thanksgiving drive.
“We’re continuing with that now,” Llewellyn said.
Classes will still be able to earn points toward Spirit Week.
The penny wars will be rescheduled, Llewellyn said, with donations most likely going to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
In a side note, the principals of New Albany and Rush schools have not yet announced if Friday's rescheduled parades will be moved to Monday to coincide with the township's trick-or-treating.
