GCPS Celebrates Garrett County Spirit Day

Last Updated on Nov 17, 2020 at 3:17pm | Public Information Office

Students and staff of the Garrett County Public School System recently celebrated the fifth annual Garrett County Spirit Day. Held on the date of the annual matchup of high school football cross county rivals Northern and Southern, the event was created to show spirit for living and working in Garrett County. Ms. Barbara Baker, superintendent, encouraged everyone to wear the schools’ team colors or the colors of another team or cause that they support. Ms. Baker stated, “If we ever needed a year to celebrate all that is good in our school system, 2020 was the year! We coordinated it this year with the dedication of the new athletic field at Northern Garrett.” Ms. Baker requested photographs of the team, school, and county spirit. Each person who submitted a photograph will be entered into a random drawing. Four winners will be chosen and Ms. Baker will make a $25.00 donation to charity in their honor. The results of the drawing will be announced at a later date. Shown below are several pictures of individuals and groups who participated in the annual event.
