In the past, Carlmont has not been known for school spirit, which has ASB stumped as to what made this year so much different.

“We were sitting and trying to figure out what made the difference this year because last year was obviously spirited, too, but this year was an all time high. Mr. Kelly was saying it was the highest it has ever been…it was just a good year. We’re not really quite sure what it was,” said ASB sophomore Annie Klups.

From pajama-clad students to spirited Scots dressed in blue and white, school pride could be found anywhere last week. Student participation reached an all time high in anticipation for the annual homecoming game on Friday, preceding Saturday’s “White Out” homecoming dance.

ASB questions if the success of the Screamin’ Scots section contributed to the increase in school spirit. The student organized cheering section, otherwise known as the Screamin’ Scots, gained a large amount of support in addition to new members this year.

“Last year I think we had a really small spirited group of Screamin’ Scots and I saw the pictures this year and I love that it’s huge now and everyone’s decked out in blue,” said former ASB President Luke Li.

It is up to the individual whether or not they choose to participate in spirited events. Though ASB makes announcements and posts Facebook statuses regarding when spirit days occur, it is not always enough to get everyone to participate.

“Spirit is a really difficult thing to control. As ASB, we can only do so much to get the kids involved… but at the end of the day, it’s really just a factor of how much the kids want to get involved,” said ASB senior Ethan Wallace.

Whether it be the increase in Screamin’ Scot participation or more interest in student involvement, ASB hopes Scot spirit continues to grow as the year progresses.
