BUFFALO CENTER, Iowa – One north Iowa school took their homecoming spirit week to the next level.
North Iowa Community Schools in Buffalo are celebrating homecoming this weekend and in celebration, every day of the week has a different theme.
On Tuesday, the theme was a “Pink-Out” in honor of their new second grade teacher, Miss Lewis who recently found out she has breast cancer.
She will be going in for a double mastectomy later this week and as a sendoff, her students changed one of their spirit days to support her in her fight with the vicious disease.
Superintendent, Cody Myer, told us that their school district comes together to support causes like this very well and that they have had one other teacher in their school district who fought against and won her battle with breast cancer.
“It’s one of those things that so many people in our community, so many people everywhere have been impacted by cancer,” Myer said. “It’s a really easy fight to jump on board with and so our kids our faculty and staff, everybody has been really supportive.”
He said that volunteers will be taking meals to the family throughout the week as a way to help out in any way that they can
Ironically enough, the spirit day the students chose to change was “Super Hero Day”, and for everyone at North Iowa Community Schools, they believe that Miss Lewis is their super hero.
