Several of the students and high school clubs have painted store front windows at downtown Ballston Spa businesses with purple and gold spirit week themes.
Students in the middle school and elementary schools will also be participating in various events throughout the week.
This year’s spirit week theme is based on the book “Oh the Places You’ll Go!” by Dr. Seuss.
