We heard our CPC Lions roar this week!!! The Athletic Council put together another awesome spirit week again this year. The week was filled with fun theme days, staff vs student challenges, senior CISAA games, and a great spirit rally to end the week. Students could be seen walking the halls in PJ’s, Beach gear, Crestwood Spiritwear, LivWise gear, 70’s/80’s/90’s and futuristic wear and grade colours.
This week we also saw both our Senior Boys’ Basketball team and Senior Girls’ Volleyball team play in front of the entire school and they did not disappoint. The Senior Boys’ Basketball team put on a show defeating Oakville Prep 107-72. The Senior Girls’ Volleyball team started out strong against Pickering College winning the first two sets. They then were narrowly defeated in the next 2 sets, setting up for an exciting 5th and final set. Some great rallies between the two but ultimately it was our Lady Lions who brought home the victory!
We capped off an amazing week with a fantastic spirit assembly.
After enjoying some tunes played by our rock band the grades battled one another in various challenges. Competitions include Crestwood Trivia, Karaoke, and Musical Chairs. In the trivia challenge, those that didn’t know their Crestwood trivia ended up with numerous eggs over their heads! The Karaoke challenge showed some great talent from rap to ballets, to Disney show tunes!
In the end, it was the Grade 11’s that won the colour war!!! The Grade 11’s will be celebrating their victory with a grub day and a pizza lunch supplied by our Parents’ Association. Not only is this a week of spirit and fun, but we also raised funds for the LivWise foundation. Olivia Wise was a beloved student of Crestwood who lost her battle to cancer in Grade 10. All funds collected this week go towards research for children’s cancers. This year we are proud to announce that we raised $1300.00. A big thank you to everyone involved in making this week an unforgettable one, the teachers and administration, the athletic council, and the students. Also a big thank you to the Parents Association for their continued support of Spirit Week!
