Student Government has made a final decision on this year’s themes for Spirit Week, which will be held this week.

“The themes were chosen by a committee in Student Government,” Nicholas De La Hoz, Student Government member and senior, said. “We decided on ten days then narrowed it down to five, which became our official days.”

Themes will include:

  • Twin Day: Students may wear matching attire with one or more student/students.
  • Little Kid/Senior Citizen Day: Students may dress as opposite generations, either little kids or senior citizens.
  • Time Warp Day: Students will choose a time period from the past and dress accordingly. Students can choose to dress as hippies from the 60s, or disco attire from the 70s, etc.
  • Movie Character Day: Students will dress up as their favorite character of choice from any well-known movie.
  • Spirit Day: Students may dress in school colors or attire which reflects school spirit.

“I think students will enjoy this year’s themes because some days are different than in the past,” De La Hoz said. “Also, Harry Potter was a big deal this year with the last movie coming out, and I think people will enjoy [movie character day]. The days are fun and people should be excited.”

Student Government has made changes to traditional Spirit Week days.

“We are not having class color day this year as we have in the past,” De La Hoz added. “We’re trying something different.”

Assistant Principal Jim Melia explained that Powderpuff had been on Thursday in the past, and was usually when students wore their class color. Due to Rosh Hashanah, Powderpuff  has been moved to Friday, when Spirit Day traditionally occurs.

“We wanted to keep Spirit Day since it is what the week is mainly about,” Melia said. “Also, with the economy the way it is, we did not want parents to have to purchase a specific colored shirt that their child may only wear once.”
