« TLC SPIRIT WEEK - MYTHOLOGICAL CREATURE DAY! | Main | What students are saying about the TLC ... »


My favorite week of the year... SPIRIT WEEK! I remember when I was teaching on Monhegan I thought it was such a bummer that most island kids would never get a chance to experience a fun "spirit week" like many mainland schools participate in. I just love time in schools when kids get to be silly, creative, and well, just KIDS!

Now, many years later... spirit week is a traditional part of our TLC program and what fun it always is! 

This year the student council came up with a long list of different ideas for "theme days" for the week and then they invited all TLC students to vote on the top five choices.


Day #1 was NEON DAY! Yep, that's me. I told you I LOVE spirt week!


Five of our TLC schools met every morning to show off their spirit day outfits via zoom. Monday morning was off to a very BRIGHT start.


Cliff Island was so bright with their TLC shirts and neon head wear!


This fifth grader from Cliff was decked out head to toe in NEON!


This may just look like a neon blob but it is a neon pre-schooler on Cliff in his bright, monster jammies.


Is that KID ROCK!? Nope, it is just one of our Cliff Island teachers decked out like ray of neon sunshine!


This Monhegan kindergartner was so bright he had to wear his sunglasses!


And a Monhegan second grader showing off her gorgeous "neon tunic!"


Our Matinicus Island teacher was bright down to her tippy toes!



Over at the Ashley Bryan School this fifth grader was showing off her neon finger nails!


And you can tell that this is her little brother. Way to go boys who aren't afraid to paint their nails! Now THAT is spirit!


Super cute neon fourth grader!

 And isn't it convenient that this 8th grader already had some awesome neon hair for neon day?!


And of course, Millie had to get in on the spirt day fun!


The TLC was SO bright it was hurting our eyes! We had 100% participation on our first spirit day! We are bright and we are spiritful!
