From Sept. 16 to 20, Agoura High School students celebrated their school spirit by dressing up with themes assigned by the school.
On Monday, September 16th, students dressed up as people from the Old West with their colorful flannel shirts and boots. The next day was Hip-Hop Tuesday, followed by Eighties Workout Wednesday, Indie/Hipster Thursday and Rock N’ Roll Friday.
“School spirit is the main purpose of this five-day event,” said H. Lee, the former sophomore president. “We want students to build stronger bonds with each other by dressing up together.”
The final day, Friday, Sept. 20, was not just a regular dress up day because Club Rush also took place during Nutrition. During Club Rush, student were allowed to experience and sign up for different types of clubs of the campus.
E. Tynan, president of club Write4Hopes, said, “Rock N Roll Friday helped people to sign up for clubs more than usual! Since most of the club leaders were dressed up so well, it attracted people to come to booths and sign up.”
Shortly after this first series of dress up days, the school held another dress up week from Oct. 7-11 in leadup to the Homecoming Dance on Saturday, Oct. 12. That week’s dress up days shared the Homecoming theme, “A Walk Through the Time.” Students were encouraged to dress up in fashions from the 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s.
Sophomore Secretary D. Moor explained, “Student unity is very important for us Chargers. The student council wants to ‘break the ice’ between freshmen and older students and make sure that everyone feels like they are part of Agoura.”
