An Ode To Spirit Week

BY: ELIZA JACKSON-WALD

I don’t know about you, but by this point in the school year, I can truly say I wish it was over. Each day presents the same monotonous cycle of six-and-a-half hours of school followed by heaping piles of homework, only to be repeated the next day. Not only does the amount of hard work and studies tend to get me down, but also the effort involved in getting socially ready for another day of school. I struggle under the burden of finding different outfits to wear every day and trying to be in a presentable manner for myself and my peers. However, there is one week out of the fifty-two where everything is different. The shining light at the end of a dark tunnel. Five days of unmitigated jubilation. Spirit Week. 

If we were at any normal school this would last one brilliant week, but seeing as we go to the grandest high school in the state of North Carolina, it doesn’t stop there. With the help of Hurricane Michael, we have been granted a miraculous extension to what we thought would end come the weekend. If you participated in the initial spirit week, fantastic job: you get more spirit week! If you did not participate, no need to fear. I know the shame you have from not engaging previously has eaten you from the inside out, but believe me, your sins will be pardoned—just participate in this week! There truly is no excuse! Nothing could be better than dressing up in outrageous outfits for five straight school days to represent what Cary High School does best: school spirit.

*Thursday’s theme is Holiday, and Friday’s is Green and White.
