Oregon and Oregon State spirit were in full display at Bend La Pine Schools Thursday. "College Day" allows students and staff to dress in their favorite college colors. It started several years ago as a way to encourage students to look beyond high school. Sky View Middle School Principal Scott Edmundson says a lot of students dressed up: “We had probably, at least 40% of our students wear colors. A vast majority of then were Duck and Beaver clothing and wigs and hats and pom-poms and socks and all sorts of neat outfits today. We had quite a few of our staff members participating as well.” Edmundson estimates about 70% of the middle school's staff participated in College Day.
