One of ODA's favorite traditions, Spirit Day, returned in full to the Uihlein Campus, with a day of friendly competition and camaraderie. Click here to view photos from the event.
The highly anticipated event commenced with a student processional around the track in Thunder Stadium before the games opened with the 8th grade obstacle course where the Blue Team narrowly defeated the White Team. All students then broke into grade level "Olympic-style" competitions including games such as the potato sack race, kickball, capture the flag, musical dots, and balloon toss. Spirit Day finished with the highly anticipated senior obstacle course, which the Blue Team won in an exciting finish. At the close of the event, there were smiles, laughter, and an incredible celebration of the sportsmanship between the two groups with the Blue Team edging out the White Team 3-2 as the winner of 2022 Spirit Day.
Congratulations to all of our students for competing with integrity. A special thank you to our volunteers, to our amazing Parent Association who treated the students, faculty, and staff to icy cold Kona Ice, and to everyone who donated peanut butter and jelly for the Food Bank of Manatee!
Have a fantastic Spring Break. We look forward to seeing you back on campus on Tuesday, April 19.
