Following a snowy night, the second day of Wish Week started with a delayed starting time, but the snow didn’t dampen the spirits of the students celebrating Je’Moni and his wish.

The dress-up theme was “The City Never Sleeps,” with students wearing pajamas. 

“I’m sad that Vista Idol got cancelled [yesterday], but I’m glad that we can be cozy in our pjs on our snow day,” Chelsea Becker, 11, said. 

The Impact Theme was “Spread the Word to End the Word,” with students packing the gym to support the Unified and the girls basketball teams. Both teams came away with victories: Unified winning their game against Highlands Ranch with a final score of 66-42, and the girls team dominating against Douglas County, winning 61-22.

While the Unified game commenced, Key Club served up a spaghetti dinner in the cafeteria. 

“[What I like about Wish Week] is how everybody is so active and how everybody comes together as one,” Meghan Butler, 11, said.

Students also ate at Cuba Cuba and Cold Stone.
