In preparation for the Courtwarming Night basketball game Friday, Jan. 10, against Skyline, El Dorado Springs R-II schools are honoring law enforcement during its spirit week.

On the first day back to school, Tuesday, Jan. 7, it was the Night Shift, where students were encouraged to wear pajamas and sweats to school. Wednesday, Jan. 8, is Cops and Robbers Day, where students may dress as law enforcement officers or criminals. Thursday, Jan. 9, is Dymamic Duo Day, although the duo does not necessarily have to be Batman and Robin. Friday, Jan. 10, is the Traffic Stop. Students should wear to stop the Skyline Tigers in their tracks.

The Bulldogs and the Tigers play a jayvee/varsity doubleheader at 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 10, at the EHS upper gym.
