Big Foot High School Celebrated Hope Week Before Spring Break
The Big Foot High School Hope Squad celebrated Hope Week with a series of activities designed to help achieve their vision.
Each day students were encouraged to dress in a certain color to represent a feeling Monday- red for energy and focus Tuesday- white- for happiness and self-respect Wednesday- green for balance and harmony Thursday- blue for calm and friendship Friday- purple for kindness).
Hope Squad members read an announcement each day, alternating between educational and real life examples.
Early in the week, students had the opportunity to wear a struggle bead necklace where the color matches a struggle (for example, gold beads represented a struggle with self-confidence). This activity was very powerful, students learned that they are not alone if they are struggling.
On Tuesday and Thursday Hope Squad served free hot chocolate and coffee.
All week long students had the opportunity to write a compliment card for another student or staff member; Hope Squad students delivered them on Friday.
There was also a "Take What You Need" wall that was filled with affirmations and positive thoughts posted on post-it notes so any student or staff could 'take what they need' off the wall all week long.
Lastly, Hope Squad members greeted students all week long and gave away our signature candy (lifesavers) as well as bracelets and bag tags that read "Hope Finds A Way at Big Foot High School".
The Hope Squad is hopeful they had a positive impact on our school during Hope Week and throughout the school year.
