The second Wish Week assembly
By Shaylee King, Henley Holland, and Lauren Penington
What a week! From the spirit days, to the game stalls, to the after school activities, we’ve made a good Wish Week.
Kicking off Wish Week with a killer assembly, we dived headfirst into raising money for our amazing wish kid- Legend’s own Rebecca Tuska.
Monday had a mind of its own with crazy talent in the teacher talent show- with Yergert taking the win with his rocking guitar battle.
“It was so cool,” sophomore Ronak D’Souza said. “He definitely deserved to win.”
Others disagree. “I don’t think he deserved to win,” sophomore Jackie Martin said. “It definitely should have gone to Thornton- he was super creative and it was a lot cooler than Yergert’s act. He still did good, but Thornton should have won.”
Tuesday brought just as much excitement with the dodgeball tournament. “We lost every game” Martin said, “but it was still a cool experience and I’m glad we competed.”
Wednesday was a day full of love with Valentine’s day and the release of our school newspaper.
Thursday was the day- our second wish week assembly where we found we had raised almost $53,000, not quite what we raised last year, and the girls took the spirit point win.
Friday was a fun day for Wish Week. There was no school and we had a fundraiser going with SkyZone. “I went almost all day,” freshman Liz Reifsteck said.
Saturday was the final day for wish week, going out with a bang with the Wish Dance. “I’m so glad I went,” Reifsteck said. “It was really fun to go with my friends, even without a date.”
What a fun, action-packed week. Give it up for the Make a Wish Foundation.
