Crazy Hair Day – Thursday, February 1st

posted in: Home Page News | 0

A reminder, DGH community, that this Thursday is our next Spirit Day: CRAZY HAIR DAY!  Perhaps the early 1980s and the “punk look” is to your liking.  Or, perhaps, the “big hair” of the mid to late-1980s is more your style.  Whether you check out some hair styles of the past or just try something outlandish on your own – make this Spirit Day happen!

This Spirit Day is not much of an issue for Mr. Parish (who is writing this post)!  Our Student Council has selected its next Spirit Day – Crazy Hair Day for Thursday, February 1st.  This is definitely a Spirit Day where we usually have outstanding participation and some extremely creative and impressive hair styles!  From colorful hair to spiked hair to “big” hair, this is a day where students re-create hair styles from the past.


Get creative, students, and start thinking about what your hair is going to look like!
