ABC Wednesday ... S is for SCHOOL SPIRIT

WE GOT SPIRIT!
YES, WE DO!
WE GOT SPIRIT!
HOW 'BOUT YOU!?

WE GOT SPIRIT,
THAT'S NO LIE!
WE GOT SPIRIT,
HEAR OUR CRY!

WE GOT SPIRIT,
THERE'S NO DOUBT!
WE GOT SPIRIT,
CHECK US OUT!

Do you remember having "School Spirit"? I was in high school in the 70's and what I remember about School Spirit was wearing our "School Colors" (navy and light blue) to sporting events and shaking small pompoms. And of course stomping on the bleachers.

Well ... "School Spirit" has come a looooooooonnggg way from that ... at least in the small town we live in now.
Now there is "SPIRIT WEEK"! A whole week to get involved, to have fun and of course to show your "SPIRIT".

"SPIRIT WEEK" is in October. It is the same week as Homecoming.
On Monday, well ... I'm told Monday is a LAME day and not too many participate ... so let's just move on to Tuesday.

Tuesday is "70's Day"
Apparently, everyone dressed in Tye-dye in the 70's.


Wednesday is "Class T-shirt day.
On this day you MUST wear a T-shirt that has the year you will graduate on it.
Each "CLASS" has a T-shirt made for this day that the students are able to purchase.
But some students make their own.

Thursday is "Class Color Day"
Each year, the "Classes"  Freshman, Sophomores, and Juniors,  choose what color they will wear for this day. Seniors are always dressed in PINK.


Sophomore year PURPLE was the color of choice.

Junior year, ORANGE was the color of choice (Sophomores are BLUE)
And as always, PINK is the color of choice for Seniors.


Friday is "School Colors" Day.

Almost every student and every Faculty member in the school district wears the colors of the High School.
I LOVE this day!! I LOVE taking pictures on this day!
Here are a few of the reasons why ...




WE GOT SPIRIT! YES!
WE DO! WE GOT SPIRIT! HOW 'BOUT YOU?!

To find more words that begin with the letter "S"

Delightful. I remember that "cry" way back in the 60's. We had lots of school spirit at our school. Those were the "good Ole Days".

That is a completely unknown concept in the Netherlands. I remember the school colours (white and green) but we only wore it during pe. And that was more than enough for me.

It would have been nice though to have a bit more connection to the other students and/or the school. Not sure about the teachers though...

Looks like a fun week and great excuse to dress up.
In UK schools we only wore the house colours for sports, cracking each others ankles with hockey sticks in winter. Ah the spirit of school days.

Now that is a fun school! we didn't have anything like that and if they did everyone would think it was lame and not take part! love that Spirit this school has!
