While dead week and finals approached, excitement filled the campus as students participated in Spirit Week from May 22 to 26.

Monday was Scot’s Day and College Day. Seniors wore their colleges’ apparel which included hats, hoodies, and fun socks.

Tuesday was Twin Day, and friends had fun coming to school dressed in matching outfits.

Emma Vanoncini, a junior, said, “I thought twin day was fun! I loved seeing all of the different friend groups, couples, and best friends wearing matching outfits.”

Vanoncini had a wonderful time organizing with her friends, deciding what shirts and shoes to wear and how to do their hair so that their outfits were exactly what they envisioned.

Wednesday was Superhero themed, giving students flashbacks to all the Marvel movies they watched and comic books they read when they were little. Students of all grades dressed up in their favorite superhero clothing.

Although Sophomore Harry Devoy did not participate in Spirit Week, he still found it amusing to watch everyone have fun.

“It was interesting to see the people that normally wear average day clothing change it up by incorporating a cape into their outfit instead,” said Devoy about Superhero Day.

Thursday was Decades Day. The different grade levels wore clothes from different time periods: freshmen wore clothing from the 1920s, sophomores from the 1940s, juniors from the 1960s, and seniors from the 1980s.

Sophomore Morgan Psaila said, “Spirit Week was such a fun experience, I am happy that ASB helps organize so many fun events for us.”

Friday was Socks and Sandals Day, bringing a new level of quirkiness to the school.

Freshman Elsa Faber said, “I am so happy that so many people participated, and hopefully we can have Spirit Weeks more often in the future.”

Faber thought it was very entertaining to observe so many people getting involved and stepping out of their comfort zones.

Kayla Gustafson, a sophomore and ASB spirit hype commissioner, said, “I helped with Spirit Week by offering my input and opinions on Spirit Day ideas.”

Gustafson encouraged students to participate by spreading the word about Spirit Week in class and around the school. Each day, Gustafson would wear clothing to fit that day’s theme.

“I told my friends to dress up. Once I convinced them, I tried to get them to tell their friends and keep the cycle going,” said Gustafson.
