Opinions: Dell’s intel: Spirit Week

We are a family here, and I will show the pride I have in my school


Zoe McCarthy (11), Shannon McLaughlin (11), and I all show our school spirit for Halloween Tuesday.

Spirit Week is here, and I couldn’t be happier because it’s a time where the entire school comes together and dresses up to get in the swing for Homecoming.

Wearing ridiculous clothing items and getting hyped up is what makes this week so fun. Tons of friends plan out outfits together and help each other get involved in the fun of having school spirit.

During this week, EHS has taken over Savers and Party City buying as many ridiculous clothing items as they can.

Seeing the kids I see every day in Pickle costumes is a real knee slapper.

Everyone that gets involved in the shenanigans is what this week is all about, but, for some reason, there are always the people who don’t participate.

I don’t understand.

Dressing up isn’t awkward. People don’t make fun of me for it. So what’s the big deal? Dress up. Look stupid. Have some school spirit, people!

Not dressing up during Spirit Week is when someone should feel awkward.

I mean, I dressed up as a Telly Tubby one day, and if that isn’t stupid or awkward I don’t know what is.

I have seen students in so many outrageous costumes: cross dressing, Scooby-Doo, pimps, bananas and so much more.

I love it, and it’s so much fun seeing everyone’s creativity.

If you don’t have anything to wear, for example, Halloween Tuesday; not everyone had their costumes or things like that. But some people didn’t even dress up for America Monday. Come on, guys, that was the easiest day!

And it’s not just Spirit Week, it’s things like attending pep rallies, football games and participating in lunch-time activities. All of these events give us an opportunity to show our school pride and let everyone know about the amazing family that we’re a part of.

Students need to get more involved in the school spirit because it shows that we are a part of the family here and that we have pride in my school’s outrageous activities.
