During lunchtime, the quad erupts in cheers. The cause of these cheers is often the latest activity that the ASB spirit commission organized.

This commission creates activities for other students to participate in and spreads spirit throughout the school.

The events really allow me to express my school spirit with others who have the same enthusiasm for it as I do, which ends up raising my own spirit and excitement even more.”

— William Castro-Ramirez

Spirit commissioner and sophomore Theo Korolev said, “We are everything that has to do with spirit. We are in charge of organizing Screamin’ Scots,  Carlmont Cup, spirit weeks, Holiday Village, Carlmont’s Got Talent, and so much more.”

The spirit commission consists of students who are motivated to inspire the school and make sure that people feel proud of their high school.

Korolev said, “We do this because our group wants to and is in charge of making the Carlmont environment the most spirited, friendly, and united community.”

Many students want to achieve this as well, so they attend these events and activities often.

Sophomore William Castro-Ramirez said, “I normally go to their [the spirit commission’s] activities and they are very entertaining and interactive. I like the different games that they play since it gives a competitive aspect to the activities.”

However, some students feel that the activities could be better organized in order to increase participation. 

“The activities are pretty poorly organized and they don’t really seem to serve much of a purpose in the school. I don’t attend them at all,” said sophomore James Jek.

Despite the lack of organization that some students sense, many still enjoy the ASB activities and feel as though they strengthen the community atmosphere.

“The events really allow me to express my school spirit with others who have the same enthusiasm for it as I do, which ends up raising my own spirit and excitement even more,” said Castro-Ramirez.
