A fond farewell: what Spirit Week meant to this year’s seniors
March 13, 2017
Spirit Week is always exciting for every grade involved, but the class of 2017 made it extra-special this year. The feeling of unity was high as they realized this was their last Spirit Week, so they made the most of their last major collaboration. Seniors poured in throughout the week to help with preparations for the pep rally. During one session of poster painting, they played nostalgic from the 2000’s music that they danced to in middle school.
“It’s super exciting because everyone gets to come together for one last hurrah,” said Emma Bruseo. “I love watching how everything comes together, because it starts as paper and becomes this huge thing.”
Meghan Corban agreed, adding: “Even though it’s a competition between the classes, I think that during Spirit Week, whenever our class sees another class struggling, they help out. Like, last year a lot of the classes ran out of tape when they were trying to hang up their posters, and other classes had extra so they let them use it. A lot of people still come together and help each other out.”
In their final skit, the seniors ended the rally with a bang – and many tears. After Ms. Frizzle’s Magic School Bus took the seniors back through the class’ major moments, they were reminded that the day Hollis and Brookline came together as the class of 2017 six years ago was where their spirit started. All they needed to find their spirit again was to remember who they were, and what they could accomplish together.
