Spirit Week secrecy

March 13, 2017

The seniors always try to keep their Spirit Week theme behind closed doors.

While Spirit Week’s skits and jokes have changed from year to year, one tradition has remained constant: the senior skit’s secrecy. Or, at least, they’ve tried to keep it constant.


While it’s often tradition for seniors to keep the subject of their assembly skit secret, it’s slipped a few times in the past few Spirit Weeks. In 2017, however, the graduating class intended to keep its Magic School Bus theme behind locked doors until the assembly on February 24.


Maggie O’Hara ‘17 doesn’t know how far back the tradition of skit secret-keeping goes, but she knows that it definitely unites the classes in anticipation for the big reveal. She also believed that the various Spirit Week competitions build suspense for the skit. “I hope that our dress-up days and other competitions help to keep them on their toes,” she said during Spirit Week, “because if we’re ahead on skit day, then they’ve got something to worry about.”
Meghan Corban ‘17 speculated that this year’s trailer video built up the tension of other classes, simply noting that “not knowing is suspenseful in and of itself.” HB will have to wait for the future to see if the tradition of senior class secrecy will hold up.
