A Snippet about School Spirit

A Snippet about School Spirit

The students at Brunswick County Early College Highschool had a great time during school spirit week. This year it was Twin Day, Jersey vs. Jersey Shore, On Wednesdays We Wear Pink, Character Day, and Tourist Day.


Twin day was highly anticipated by students who planned to dress up. Zero Ellen, a junior, said that they, as well as their friends, were talking about what they would wear since the day the themes were revealed. There were some students with elaborate matching outfits while others just wore the same color t-shirt. Either way, students had a great time dressing up with their friends.

Jersey vs. Jersey Shore was less popular, but the students who did participate gave it their all. Due to dress code restrictions, there were more jerseys than Jersey Shores, but people seemed to enjoy showing off their preferred team.

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink Day was one of the most popular, partly because of how easy it was to do. Nonetheless, “It was fun seeing all the different people wearing the same bright color.” says sophomore Callie Lowery.

Character Day was when the students got the most creative. For example, a group of 10 students, ranging from grade 9 through 11, dressed as almost the entire cast of the cartoon, Phineas and Ferb.

Finally, Tourist Day. Sadly, tourist day wasn’t very popular in comparison to the rest of the week. This means the week ended on a less than exciting note but let’s credit that to the rest of the week being excitement enough rather than fault the tourist theme.

Overall, this year’s spirit week had interesting themes and the students who participated made it all the more entertaining. It allowed students to be creative and have fun with their peers, and isn’t that the ultimate goal of Spirit Week?
