As students returned to school Tuesday from the snow-induced coma of a six-day weekend, they were met with a palpable excitement that only comes with winter spirit week. Although the week had been cut short, students were still able to show their spirit in three dress up days and one exciting pep rally.

Wednesday was known as “decades day,” and consisted of a wide variety of costumes that were inspired by every decade from the 20’s to the 90s! The senior class took home the trophy with this spirit day, while the juniors followed in second place, with the sophomore class in third place and the freshman class in fourth.

Thursday is a designated “class icon” day, in which the class chose one person within the school to imitate in their appearance for the day (freshmen dressed as Mr. Piersol, sophomores as Mr. Wilkes, juniors as student Madoc Kimball (’19) and seniors as fellow Class of 2018 member Ethan Choo). Once again, the seniors collected a win with the juniors following close behind and the freshmen taking a solid third place.

Finally, Friday will bring the dressing of students in their class colors (freshmen in orange, sophomores in white, juniors in red, and seniors in black/blue), as well as a rematch in the lip sync competition. Performances by each class will take place in the auditorium, and the winning class will be awarded 100 points towards their tally. The winter pep rally will take place during the second half of the day. The pep rally this season will also involve a student-faculty basketball game, with students Charlie Unice (’21), Andrew Van De Putte (’21), Emma Chun (’20), Josh George (’19), Will Hobbs (’19), Oliver Fisk (’19), Aditya Kannoth (’18), and Joe Paul (’18) in participation. Students will also have multiple opportunities to score points for their class in several Minute-to-Win-It activities, which will contribute in deciding which class will take home this season’s winter spirit victory.
