Mother Brunner has an entire week of themes and celebration events planned for Catholic Schools Week. You will find the complete list here. If your student is not able to participate in a theme day they must be in school uniform that day if they do not fully participate in a particular day’s theme. No jeans with holes or tears each day of Spirit Week, NO leggings, and NO shirts with graphics, pictures, or words.
School Spirit Really Red Day:
Wear as much red as you can to show your bulldog spirit! Students are encouraged to wear “RED” Clothing to celebrate our own great Catholic School, Mother Brunner!
Favorite Team Day:
Wear a shirt/jersey, hat, or other items with your team! Students wear Jerseys, T-Shirts, or any combination of colors that reflect their favorite team. Students may wear appropriate blue jeans or sweatpants colors of their favorite sports teams.
Wear your PJs:
Pajamas must meet the general criteria of out-of-uniform standards as outlined in the student handbook:
*Shirts and pants, no shorts, gowns or athletic pants, or sweats. Pajama shirts must have sleeves. You can wear a robe.
*Students should wear gym shoes to school. NO SLIPPERS/NO CROCS.
*Students must wear all appropriate undergarments with their pajamas.
*Please double-check that all PJs are appropriate for wearing out in public.
Super Hero, Movie Star, Bestie Day:
Dress like your favorite superhero or TV/movie character or if you have a bestie, dress as twins! Students can dress up for the day and channel their inner superhero, favorite tv/movie character, or twin with someone. Students who dress up from each grade band (PreK-2), (3-5), and (6-8) will be entered in a drawing to win a restaurant gift card.
Crazy Clothes Day:
Wear as many colors and patterns, a wacky hat and some silly socks. The possibilities are endless! Students get to match their clothing in combinations that would never be worn together. (For example, A purple striped shirt with a green and yellow plaid vest.) Get super creative with this one! Pictures will be taken.
