Upon entering the Farmer Family Gym, visitors are greeted with the sight of over 425 enthusiastic middle school students cheering on their fellow classmates in a sea of orange and black. This was because there was an ASL spirit day in the middle school.
On spirit day, on March 4, middle school students dressed up in orange and black. Each grade got points for participation, and the grade that got the most participation points won the spirit day.
For the second year in a row, the class of 2020 won spirit day. This is the third time that the class of 2020 has won the ASL spirit day in their four years in the middle school
Unlike last year’s spirit assembly, this one was at the end of the day which changed the school day to a Wednesday schedule. Last year the assembly was in the morning instead of at the end of the day, so it was 30 minutes shorter. Having the assembly at the end of the day gave the students more time to enjoy the assembly and more time to do the activities, like the Whipped Cream Challenge, Dodgeball, and Drip, Drip Splash.
When Student Council president Natalie Vann was asked about her opinion on the spirit assembly she said, “I think it was successful because a lot of kids enjoyed the activities, and had a lot of fun, and I think that the eighth grade was ecstatic about winning.”
