From November 16th-20th, the OBHS senior class participated in their own Senior Spirit Week. Seniors proudly displayed their school spirit by wearing a unique outfit correlating with each day’s theme.
Neon bows and high socks flooded the hallways as seniors took a trip back to their middle school persona on Monday, which was “Dress like Your Younger Self Day.” Students chose to wear an outfit that best represented their style from when they were in middle or elementary school.
“I enjoyed dressing up as my middle school self because it was fun to go through my old clothes and laugh about my past fashion choices!” Lauren Swezey shares.
Tuesday was “Bikers vs Surfers Day,” allowing students to choose which group they wanted to represent. Students who chose to be a biker showed their spirit in leather jackets and black boots. Meanwhile, the “surfers” wore Hawaiian shirts and leis.
“I thought it was nostalgic because I love the movie Teen Beach Movie,” Ava Aschettino says. “This day represented both the groups that are portrayed in the movie.”
On Wednesday, seniors wore flannels and cowboy hats for “Wild West Wednesday.” Although all of the days had a successful turnout, seniors showed the most spirit on this day.
On Thursday, “Mathletes versus Athletes Day” gave seniors another opportunity to pick which side to represent. Many students sported jerseys, while others wore the OBHS Mathletes Team shirts.
Finally, on Friday, seniors ended the week with “Senior Citizens Day,” where students wore grey wigs and brought walkers to best portray their future selves.
“I think that senior citizen day went really well because it was so fun to see everyone go full out, especially since we have never done a day like this before,” Beryl Rosenberg says.
The Student Council Class of 2021 officers collaborated with the Student Council Executive Board to make the week possible. Brianna Barefoot, Class of 2021 President, reveals, “We really wanted to give the senior class a chance to have some sort of a spirit week. I had fun working with the other council and seeing our ideas come to life.”
Although the Class of 2021 did not have a traditional spirit and homecoming week, they are nonetheless happy about their Senior Spirit Week experience. With everything going on, it is nice to see that our school spirit will never change.
