The hallways, playgrounds and classrooms in Bend-La Pine Schools will soon be filled with school spirit as thousands of students and staff don the colors of their favorite college, university, trade school or other institute of post-secondary education during our annual College Day celebration Thursday, Nov. 16. Many schools are also hosting college and career related events on this day to get students thinking about their futures and post-secondary education.
