There are so few high school events that can bring together students much like the promise of Pajama Day. On the eve of finals and a long-awaited winter break, Citrus Valley High School held its holiday-themed Spirit Week beginning on Dec. 2, 2019 and ending on Dec. 6. The buzz of excitement and festivities permeated the week’s themes of Winter Wonderland, Long Winter Slumber (i.e. Pajama Day), Ugly Christmas Sweaters, Flannel Family, Santa Claus and Elves/Reindeers.
