AIS Vienna has had spirit days and spirit weeks for many years like the majority of schools.
However, the Elementary Schools second annual Spirit Day was an event like no other that brought all three divisions together.
The culminating event of the ES Spirit Week was and all school Spirit Day that focused on the SCIS Varsity Girls Basketball tournament that AIS Vienna was hosting. The two games that AIS's Varsity Girls played saw the Mike Maloy Gym packed to the rafters with sign holding, pom pom waving, screaming students. The ES student council organized; banners, cheers, a mascot, half time games and giveaways. Together with the entire ES, MS and HS students, teachers and staff filled the gym and cheered on our girls to an ultimate tournament championship (their 5th in a row).
Individual division spirit days and weeks are great events but seeing the entire AIS community bonding in one room was something special. Sincere, thanks go to the ES Student Council and the Booster Club for their initiative.
