Virtual Spirit Days
As part of ongoing efforts to help UPSD community members connect with one another in positive ways, UPSD hosted a series of voluntary district-wide virtual spirit days beginning Monday, March 30 and ending on Wednesday, April 8. Community members took pictures of students’ participation in spirit days and submitted them to the district. On social media, #KeepingSpiritsUP was used in conjunction with the virtual spirit days. Read on for a gallery of virtual spirit day images and an overview of the virtual spirit day schedule.
