SLU PTSA's 5th Annual Spirit Week Recap

SLU PTSA's 5th Annual Spirit Week Recap

This year’s SLU PTSA Spirit Week brought our students a rush of excitement a few weeks before finals and a much needed community gathering of all SLU PT students! Our Spirit Week kicked off on November 11th with the coveted Turkey Bowl flag football tournament between cohorts! With hard fought efforts and trying to defrost during half-times, our PY1 students came out on top and blew everyone away as an underdog! On Monday, our dress-down days started and continued all week including class colors (Mon), Jerseys/Sport (Tues), Groutfit (Wed), PJ’s - our students favorite day (Thurs), and SLU Spirit Wear (Fri)! To wrap up the week we introduced a new event beginning this year, our Pie-A-Professor event and boy was it exciting and added a bit of competition between students and staff funding the competition! Our students and even our professors constantly donated money and throughout the week the Top 3 professors was constantly changing and our lucky Top 3 professors that were pied were Dr.’s Kim Levenhagen, Barb Yemm, and Ann Hayes. All the funds we raised throughout the week directly benefitted the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research, a fund that is very near and dear to our Program! Overall, our students and staff raised $340 to be donated! It was another successful Spirit Week and I know our students and staff are already counting down the days till next year!
