Spirit Week seeks to lift Trojans’ spirits

To keep school spirit alive during the pandemic, CVHS students will participate in Spirit Week from Oct. 25-31 from home.

“We are trying to bring together our school community in an online learning environment,” said ASB Vice President Lauren Green.

Around this time most years, CVHS students would be dressing up for Homecoming days, working on class floats, dances, and skits. However, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and distance learning, a Homecoming was simply impossible.

To keep spirits up, leadership students planned a virtual Spirit Week in place of Homecoming. Throughout this week, students will dress up according to an “old school spirit days” theme. 

The first spirit day is the juniors with the subtheme of pajama day, sophomores would follow with crazy sock day, freshmen with crazy hair day, seniors with Disney day, and the last day of Spirit Week is a Halloween holiday dress-up, in honor of Halloween being the following Saturday. Each spirit day will also have a corresponding online event that relates to the theme. 

Since CVHS is currently doing distance learning, students are encouraged to post pictures showing their spirit to social media. 

“We hope that students participate in Spirit Week by dressing up and sharing pictures.  We want to see our social media accounts filled with pictures of our students dressed up all week,” Activities Director Thomas Maloney said.

    I think Spirit day wasn’t very good. Not many people participated, and no teachers even mentioned it. In all of my classes I only say three other people participating on one day. Nobody really talked about it beforehand, so not many students got the message.
