With school back in session, Carlmont’s ASB aims to combat the stress from the first week of school by rekindling student involvement with a brand new Spirit Week.

Melina Dimick, a junior and member of ASB, said, “Our goal with this Spirit Week is to encourage more student participation and involvement throughout Carlmont. We tried to make this Spirit Week one that every student could participate in by creating easier and more accessible themes.”

Monday was America Day where an abundance of students dressed up in red, white, and blue to show off their Spirit Week participation.

Tuesday was Whiteout Day which encouraged students to dress up in all white in order to represent one of Carlmont’s colors.

Junior Kelly Lelapinyokul said, “Whiteout Day was definitely my favorite Spirit Week theme because it was really cool to walk through the hallways and see everyone being involved in an activity representing our school spirit.”

The next Spirit Week theme was Wacky Wednesday where students dressed up in crazy outfits, such as tutus, mismatch shoes, and even wigs.

Lastly, Thursday will be Sports Day, followed by Scots Day on Friday where students will sport their blue and white Carlmont gear.

Sophomore Sophia Campbell said, “I always look forward to Scots Day, as it helps the students get excited about the home football games, as well as coming together to represent our school spirit and community.”

Behind the scenes, the ASB spirit commission actively holds brainstorming sessions where they discuss new ways to get more students to engage in Spirit Week activities.

Alice Godwin, a junior and member of ASB, said, “A lot of hard work goes into planning these Spirit Weeks. When planning one, we try to think about clothes people would already have in their closets and clothes people would be comfortable wearing. We always try to make sure there is a balance of fun and ease in order to encourage most students to participate.”

Additionally, ASB strives to benefit and unify the Carlmont community through these Spirit Weeks in order to maintain a positive school atmosphere.

“Spirit Weeks are essential and beneficial to the Carlmont community in that they help build a sense of unification and positivity among students,” said Dimick. “It is so rewarding and exciting to see an abundance of different students all come together to participate in a school activity.”
