Winter Spirit Recap
February 22, 2023
The Winter Spirit Week, held Feb. 6-10, appeared to have its ups and downs. Although the pep rally was canceled on Feb. 10, presumably due to a threat of a fight breaking out at the event, the Student Government Association (SGA) members who came up with the spirit day ideas were pleased with the participation.
“I do think a lot of people dressed up, which was phenomenal, especially for the Twin Day and the White Lies Day. We had a great number of people participate and be creative.” said SGA President Faith Shields.
Several of the days, such as Soccer Mom vs. BBQ Dad Day, and Salad Dressing Day, required some explanation. Still, some students expressed satisfaction about the themes. “ I really liked the White Lies Day. It was fun and new and a good way for everyone to expose themselves without getting judged,” said junior Hadley Dyke. Students wore white tees with sayings on them that were not true in a day reminiscent of playing “Two Truths and Lie.”
While some other students said they didn’t enjoy some of the days, others got into the spirit. “I felt like this spirit week was kind of rushed. Salad Dressing Day didn’t make any sense to me and I thought it was kind of lame,” said sophomore Peyton Hamshar.
The pep rally has been rescheduled for Feb. 24 in order to celebrate the winter sport and academic teams, so the school will operate on an activity bell that day.
“We will most likely pair a few things with the pep rally, but probably not another spirit week, just because when we have them too much, it decreases the participation,” Shields said.
Here is the list of people who won each spirit day:
Monday- “Mike and Ike (Twin Day)” – Seniors – 34 participants
Tuesday- “Soccer Mom vs. BBQ Dad” – Seniors – 34 participants
Wednesday – “White Lies Day” – Freshmen – 50 participants
Thursday- “Salad Dressing Day” – Juniors and Seniors – 30 participants
Friday- “Candy Heart Color Wars Day” – Seniors – 118 participants
