Happy Spirit Week, HT! Thanks to the freshmen for the awesome Hippie Day decorations on the third floor. Tomorrow is Decade Day so let’s make HT feel like a blast from the past by dressing up for your favorite decade of style! Roaring 20s? Neon 80s? You pick! But you must come in costume if you wish to be out of uniform. "Present day” does not count as a decade day costume.
