The sophomores performed for Spirit Week in the school’s gym on Tuesday, October 20. Class of 2018’s theme was “Finding Nemo.”
This long-awaited performance took months of hard work from the sophomore class council. The class of 2018 tried extremely hard to prepare for their dances.
“During practices, everyone is usually doing what they’re supposed to be doing,” sophomore class vice president Ashley Chu said. “Everyone is focused, determined, and always filled with excitement. Occasionally, people will mess around, but that’s what makes everything fun.”
This year, the sophomores made an effort to increase their class’s participation.
“I’m trying to get people more involved and more spirited,” sophomore class president, Nathan Young, said. “I [wanted] to make the dances more intricate and fun and also create a larger class spirit.”
The amount of people participating in this year’s spirit week increased drastically from their last year’s performance. According to Young, about 50 more people participated this year. The increase in participation was obvious to the spectators in the rally.
“They definitely improved on their unity as a class,” junior Zeralene Yet said. “It’s nice to see how a lot of the sophomores are more open to participate. The entire performance was so good, I can’t choose a favorite part.”
The sophomores received positive feedback from many different students.
“I liked the performance a lot,” freshman Shraddha Prasad said. “The sophomores did very well. Everyone was really hyped up!”
Although Spirit Week was a competition between the classes, winning was not everything to the sophomores. The sophomores made sure their experience during the week was enjoyable.
“Spirit week is made for us to have fun,” sophomore Christina Lam said. “Spirit week makes students bond closer and become more involved with school activities, which is equally important as having fun!”
