Is Spirit Week Necessary?

From hallway decorations to the different arrange of colors walking through the halls, spirit week is a week for teenagers to be teenagers. At Edward Little High School, we take spirit week seriously, and even though it’s a week that is not totally focused on academics, I can say that with definite confidence that it has a positive impact on the school community.

With the big bad seniors wearing black and conquering the halls, you always have the juniors tagging along trying to steal the ghost, the sophomores stepping up their game, and the freshmen just beginning to get the feel of how Edward Little tackles this crazy week. Even though spirit week shows everyone’s competitive side, it also is a time that the school community bonds and becomes stronger. Spirit week doesn’t just allow teenagers to have fun; it also allows classes to work together to become closer.
