Front Office brings Mustangs together with new delicious dips every week

Longtime Dip Day enthusiast, Sierra Dunlap, enjoys her homemade caramel apple dip.

Dip Day has been a popular tradition for the Front Office and the counseling staff, where student aids and staff members can volunteer to bring in a homemade dip for mustangs to enjoy. It has become so popular that the different dips are scheduled out through the end of the year. 

“Dip Day started when myself, Norah Jorstad, and Ayla Flett wanted to do something fun amongst the office assistants last year,” Stacy Thomson, Front Office Secretary said. “We decided on dip because there are so many different types and it feeds a lot of people.” 

Dip Day typically falls on Thursday or Friday afternoons, which makes it open to more students and staff passing through who want to come try the dip. A big fan of Dip Day, Hallen Haile (12) said, “My favorite dip was probably the buffalo chicken dip, but now we have the pizza dip.”

Dip Day has expanded beyond just enjoying the delicious food, but has become a bonding experience for MSHS. “It’s really encouraging some community bonding within the school. It’s mainly open to office aides, counseling aides and staff members, but anyone is welcome to come and try the dips,” said senior Sierra Dunlap, who has been a counseling aid since last year. 

Dips have ranged from pizza or queso dips to sweet dessert dips, but the dip that started it all is Mrs Perkins’s buffalo chicken dip. “Miss Perkins had brought in buffalo chicken dip one of the days and we were like, ‘What if we had a dip day at the end of every week?” Dunlap said. 

Dip Day has become a treat that people look forward to at the end of a long week. Thomson said, “It’s truly the little things like this that add something special to the school week. I encourage even more people to bring their dip game.”
