This year’s spring spirit week at a glance:

Monday:

The week started off with as Opposites Day, in which girls and boys traded looks.  Boys embraced skirts, dresses and crop tops. Girls came to school in baggy jeans and name brand t-shirts.

Although it was opposite day (gender switch day), the dress code still applied. Seniors Chris Peters, Bethany Pindrock, and junior Nate Taillon showed off their looks.

Tuesday:

Day 2 of spirit week was all about sports. Students and staff dressed up in their favorite sports jerseys. Some students even took it upon themselves to dress as coaches or players and act as so.

Some staff, such as history teacher David Bedka, showed their school spirit with wacky outfits supporting their favorite sports teams.

Wednesday:

The third day of spirit week was a little more mature. Everywhere you looked, you could see the elderly (or at least students dressed as such). Many seniors dressed and looked the part.

Seniors, such as Tyler Reyes, showed spirit by dressing up multiple days, making this spirit week a success.

Thursday:

This was a day full of national pride. Students wore red, white and blue in unique ways, from bandanas to clothing with flag print. Some students even filled the halls with patriotic musical pieces, such as “America” and “The Star Spangled Banner.”

Senior Kyle Brown used props to emphasize the patriotic theme.

Friday:

Friday’s pep rally encouraged students and staff to sport spirit wear. Some students came to school in full out blue and gold with face paint and colored socks.

The pep rally consisted of silly games, student spirit videos, and even a Prom-posal.
