Virtual Fall Spirit Week Recap

We started off Wednesday’s junior/senior assembly with Laura Keldorf and John Preacher facilitating a quick primer on how to be an informed voter. They referenced great information provided by Common Sense Media and On the podium and winning premium gift cards for their Kahoot! performance were 1st: Junior Max Jones, 2nd: Senior Nathan Cimral and 3rd: Senior Ava Wisdom. Our top staff member was Kevin Vukovich, barely out of 5th place.  
On Friday, the freshmen & sophomores were treated to Riverdale’s first ever virtual pep assembly, MC’d by super sophomores Abby Zurasky and Audrey Bong. Halloween puns and jokes were a bonus to the goofy games and head-to-head on-camera contests. For their Kahoot! performance, Janice Olguin was the top staff member (12th place) and on the podium were 1st: Freshman Winslow Reece, 2nd: Sophomore Audrey Bong and 3rd: Sophomore Jack Plummer.
Spirit Week was fully planned by the students of the Maverick Club and saw daily dress-up themes, throwback Halloween photos from childhood, a candy guessing contest and other daily activities.
