Snow days, early releases and delayed openings seem to be the blessing all students have been asking for this winter. However, it’s also been a burden on some of the students and special events here at HB. Spirit Week is the best and worst week for some students, where lots of work comes into play with just five days to perfect a skit, create a dance, make posters, and dress up each day for Spirit Week points. Due to the numerous amounts of snow the week before vacation, Spirit Week seemed impossible to complete for the Friday before February break. After discussion between student council and advisers, the decision was made that Spirit Week would be moved to the week after February vacation. So what changes?

Never has this been done before, but because of the move of Spirit Week, there are some extra changes that come with it. There are no new dress up days this week, except for the classic blue and white day on Friday that will be averaged with the previous blue and white day. All after-school preparation continues this week with each class dividing up to conquer the challenges. Although there are no official dress up days, the senior class created some of their own this week to continue Spirit Week, not for the competition, but for the spirit alone. Class of 2014 Vice President Jonathan Northcott said, “I’m happy that the work the classes had already put in didn’t go to waste, but it has become extremely difficult to recreate the same energy.”

Although the changes are foreign to many students, the spirit at HB is still alive and buzzing around. Spirit Week will hopefully be the same even though the week has changed.
