Creative takes on Spirit Week
March 13, 2017
The various themes for Spirit Week were colorful, creative and liberating for many students. For some, however, that wasn’t enough – they decided to take it one step further. For example, Anthony Basque ‘18 wore a crusader’s helmet during USA day, which he had borrowed from Aidan Canfield ‘18. With a plastic American flag sticking out of one eye slit and a red white and blue flower necklace, Anthony said, “Communism is dead. Freedom is the truth.”
Rachel Romanow ‘18 came into school on tie-dye day wrapped in a plethora of her father’s ties, with the one on her chest reading “DYE” in bright letters. “I came completely covered in ties because it was a pun, and I thought it was punny,” she said.
These creative ways in which some students interpreted the given days were an interesting and creative alternative to the norm.
