From Nov. 16-20, students, staff and administrators in Freeport Public Schools’ Leo F. Giblyn Elementary School participated in the school’s annual spirit week. Each day featured a different theme including Team Tuesday, Whacky Wednesday and Farmer Friday with students showing their spirit by wearing team T-shirts and face masks, mismatched socks, brightly colored hair, and handcrafted hats and headbands.
For at least five years, Giblyn’s annual spirit week has included a food drive benefiting Freeport Outreach. This year, Giblyn students and staff collected and donated an impressive 3,057 food items to the organization.
