SHOWING SCHOOL SPIRIT

SHOWING SCHOOL SPIRIT

Allison Edwards and India Smith

Showing school spirit is an activity everyone can participate in to support their school. There are many different ways you can show school spirit including dressing up, wearing your school’s colors, and going to different events that the school puts on. Here at Connersville High School, October 18 through 22 is the school’s “Spirit” Week.

Starting off the week, Monday is “dress like a dad” day. Time to clean off the grill and pull out the “Kiss the Cook” apron along with the corny dad jokes. Cargo pants, (school-appropriate) cut-off denim shorts, and Hawaiian shirts are classic “dad” outfits that are easy to pull together. On Tuesday, grab a friend or a teacher and dress like twins or doppelgängers. If you accidentally bought the same tie-dyed shirt as seven other people on the eighth grade Washington D.C trip, then wear that. Wednesday is a fan favorite, pajama day. Spending the whole day at school in your pajamas sounds like a dream. Get it? A dream… Anyway, Thursday is generation day where each grade dresses up as a different age group. The freshmen are dressing up as babies, sophomores as teenagers, juniors as parents (good thing mom jeans are back in style), and seniors as senior citizens. Finally, Friday is the day where you can wear your Halloween costume to school. There will be a costume contest where the best costumes in each grade will win a prize. Make sure to dress up and participate to show your Halloween “spirit.”
