Wednesday, Veterans Memorial students dressed up as their favorite duo movie characters for “Movie Duos Day.” There were dynamic duos from all genres, from classic films to modern blockbusters. There were Duos like SpongeBob and Patrick, Sulli and Boo from Monster Inc, Blue Brothers, etc. Many iconic duos were worn, showing the personalities of the students and teachers at the school.

On came rolling in “Back To The Future” day, where the school dressed up as their favorite 80’s attire or as their future self! Big hair, neon colors, leg warmers, letterman jackets and oversized sunglasses filled the hallways for those who chose to do the 80’s theme. Sophomore Jia Urquico, wearing a “Back To The Future” movie shirt, says, “I love the movie so much, and this shirt perfectly fits the 80’s theme while still looking modern.” Others who chose their future self wore more job or career-type outfits expressing their dreams and passions in life.

Senior Aryana Mendoza’s unique mum was filled with many meaningful traits. One of them being a stuffed animal cow. “I’ve always loved cows, and they’ve always been my favorite animal, so I thought, why not put one on my mum,” Mendoza states. Everyone was excited and fulfilled with the Patriot pride this week!
