“Dressing up is one of the most fun parts of high school,” junior Abby Marino said, “and wearing fun outfits with my friends makes it even better.”

Students are excited about Spirit week because of the creativity that becomes involved with their costumes.

“The best way to get people to dress-up,” junior Aidan Holt said, “is to change the themes.”

Dressing up creates lasting memories and spirit that makes students excited for Homecoming.

“The best way to show spirit is participating in the pep rally,” junior Hanna Mitchell said, “and having fun at the football game.”

Homecoming Week is looked forward to by students and teachers all year and it is a tradition to bring back past students to the football game.

“I feel very excited,” junior Ashley Bartos said, “because it’s the best time of the year!”
