Spirit Week

by Pat Burns

Last week Mount Mercy Academy celebrated its annual Spirit Week.  The week featured special dress days and several activities as well as a collection of paper products for Peace House.  On Monday the classes decorated various hallways in their assigned themes and dressed as characters from PBS Kids (freshmen), Universal Studios (Sophomores), Disney (juniors) and Nickelodeon (seniors).  Tuesday was “Tunesday” where students dressed in period attire from any of the different music genres.  Wednesday was Circle of Mercy Day where the freshmen dressed as babies, the sophomores as kids/teens, the juniors as middle-aged people and the seniors dressed as senior citizens.  The day also featured a pin dodgeball game contest that was won by the junior class.  Thursday was country/country club day where students dressed in country or country club gear.  Friday was class color day and a lip sync battle which was won by the seniors, clinching the spirit week championship for the Class of 2022.

"Mercy is more than just a school. Mercy is my second home and a shoulder to lean on. Mount Mercy has given me the confidence and resources to pursue my passions and make the world a more inclusive place, propelling me to take strides into male-dominated fields. Mercy blessed me with an environment to grow intellectually and in the community, giving me the foundation to make a tangible impact while making lifelong friendships."
