Spirit Week 2.0 kicked off on Monday, April 9, with Decades Day, with lots of Grauer students walking around campus in their colorful clothing representing different decades. The Musical Chairs game at lunchtime was a fun event, with two students representing each grade, and Tracy Ahrens and Mimi Robinson representing the faculty. The competitors raced around the taped-off field in Meyer Hall, trying to pop each other's balloons. It all came down to the final two contestants - Isabella F. '21 and Ricky A. '19, and Isabella was the winner after an intense head-to-head competition!

Students wore Disney character costumes, as well as costumes representing other franchises owned by Disney including Star Wars and Marvel Comics.
