M-A’s got spirit! In the week before mid-winter break, students showed their school spirit in ways from funky hats to intense cupcake competitions. Junior and leadership student Ishy Mishra said “my favorite part of spirit week is the way it brings people together and everybody comes together to watch the events, and I think it’s kind of beautiful.”

In five minutes of sugary chaos, teams of three or four students raced to create the perfect cupcake. Ultimately, Mr. Loosekoot chose the cupcake decorated by freshmen Zoe Fong, Lilah Chen, and Lainey Egnal.
