On December 23rd, the day before vacation, the 7th grade staff will be holding an 80's day. Everybody can dress up and run for the best 80's costume. There will be prizes for the best costume. Some ideas for the students include big crimped hair, high ponytails, and leg warmers, (for girls.) For the guys, skinny ties, combs in the back pocket, and pop collars.
Madame Elliott spoke to us about 80's day and how she feels about it.
Back in the OLD DAYS, she starts with, they would always have a party before Christmas, celebrating the Christmas spirit with junk food. Now in the 21st century, times have changed, and more people are celebrating other religious holidays. Madame wanted a celebration that didn't involve only one religion. It's not just for the religious reasons, its so the students and teachers can celebrate something we can all participate in. As the teachers get older, we'll hire younger teacher that haven't lived in the 80's. So, its now now or never to celebrate these moments in history of differences and diversity.
And as Bob Dylan said, "The times they are a changin."
