During the week starting on Monday, October 13, Crescenta Valley High School (CVHS) held its annual Spirit Week. Students dressed up appropriately to each day’s respective theme, such as Pajama Day, America Tuesday, Pink Day, Superhero Thursday, and Dress-up Friday.
Students and teachers were seen during the school days with a whole variety of clothes. Many students took pictures, some even with peers they didn’t know, because of the injection of spirit.
When contacted by JSR, CVHS student Hannah Lee stated, “Spirit Week was really a great time to just take random pictures with really just anybody.”
For Crescenta Valley’s Associated Student Board (ASB), Spirit Week is a way to help unify students with other students and excite them for future upcoming school spirit events.
Not only is Spirit Week great for unifying students, it also excites students for the homecoming dance at the end of the week. Megan Torres, ASB director of Spirit Assembly at CVHS, told JSR that “Spirit Week helps get the student body excited and it adds to the hype of homecoming season.”
Crescenta Valley aspires to keep its Spirit Week accessible to everybody, meaning that any outfit can be found easily in anyone’s closet. Torres continued “When thinking of the dress up days, the ASB cabinet kept this whole accessible thing a priority so any student can take part and raise school spirits.”
“It’s a surprise to me to see several people who you don’t expect to dress up to actually just take part in one of these special days,” Lee said in her interview. “This is what makes Spirit Week so exciting because you never know who’s behind the mask.”
