Events and Dress Up Days that are scheduled for Snow Week.

This year Snow Week will bring a whole new excitement into the new OHS with this being the first year the new school will hold Snow Week. People can not wait to see the OHS  getting all excited to kick off the week and celebrate all the students in the Top 12. Voting for Snow Week King and Queen opened on Wednesday, Feb. 7 and closes on Thursday, Feb. 8. 

This week is going to kick off with amazing dress-up days throughout the week. Starting on Monday is PJ Day, Tuesday is Mistle Toes or fun socks day, Wednesday is Pinks and Red, Thursday is Frosty Flannel and Friday is White Out. Head of Snow Week chairs, senior Nathanial Ranslow said, “I feel the dress-up days that we came up with for this Snow Week are very creative but also easy for students to participate in.” These dress-up days are only making the week more exciting. 

Dress-up days are not the only thing that OHS is doing to celebrate Snow Week. Many events are going on after and during school throughout the week. Starting on Monday, Feb. 12, after school in the OHS main gym at 5 p.m. there will be Adaptive Floor Hockey. That is not the only thing OHS is cheering on in the main gym on Monday. At 7:30 p.m. Volleyball Extravaganza will begin, where it costs $1 to watch. On Tuesday, Feb. 13, Boys Basketball plays at 7:30 p.m. in the main gym at OHS. Wednesday, Feb. 14 brings even more excitement in the middle of the week with Family Feud in the Foundation’s Room at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 15 Section Wrestling will have their match in the main gym at OHS at 6:30 p.m. Closing this very eventful week off with watching Boys Basketball at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 16. 

All of these events are so exciting after school, but the events during school only bring more excitement to the school day. Starting with the medallion hunt, a known OHS tradition, those who find the medallion, using clues from throughout the week, will be awarded a set of AirPods. During the lunches, one can pay $1 to send a can of pop to their “crush”. The pep fest will be held on Monday, Feb. 12 right after 1st hour,  with lip sync battles by the candidates. 

Snow Week brings so much joy and events into the week to celebrate the wonderful Top 12 and Top 5 candidates. OHS makes it very memorable and special for the staff and students and everyone cannot wait for the week to begin.
