Jersey Friday

No matter if you are 7 or 70, everyone has a "team". You know that team that you have followed since you were a kid, or maybe a team that you remember watching your with your parents on TV growing up. It could be local high school team, the team of your former college, or even a pro team on the other side of the country, we all love being able to cheer for "our team".

With that in mind, earlier this semester with the help of Mr. C, we implemented Jersey Friday on casual Fridays with our fifth and sixth grade classes. Even since this bi-weekly event has really picked up steam, below are a few of the notable jerseys around our school today:

Ariana supporting Club Chivas

Mrs. Angeles supporting her favorite soccer team

Mrs. Greer showing her New Jersey roots by supporting Rutgers Football.

Ms. Owens supporting the orange crush of the Denver Broncos

By far the highlight of the day, Mr. Sovereign going old school with the Dick Butkus #51 of the Chicago Bears

It feels good to experience the highs and lows that come along with following a sports team, and it is a great emotion that everyone can experience. Friday, why not start Jersey Friday at your school/work?
