Cheerleaders cheering, dance club members dancing, crowd cheering, ice dousing teachers, the soccer team running, volleyball team running, band playing music. All of these were at Alta Vista’s pep rally Sept. 2, as well the winners of spirit day announced, .

“Spirit Week is a nice way to feel more relaxed, and personalities come out especially around the beginning of the school year,” math teacher Connor Nowalk said.

“Spirit Week is a good way to show how much students and staff like the school,” sophomore Tania Viera said.

AV’s annual Spirit Week occurred during the third week of the school year.

“It is nice that the school attempts to have a unified celebration,”  senior Stevie Jo Hernandez said.

Students have different favorite spirit days, such as pajama day, wacky tacky day and decades day. “My favorite day was spirit day,” Viera said.

However there are some people  who did not dress up – “mostly seniors,”  senior Guadalupe Chavez observed.

Some people feel that Spirit Week would have been better in the year like in October.  Some would have changed the order of things during Spirit Week.

“It would also be better if the pep rally was at the end of the week not the beginning,” Nowalk said.

Spirit Week usually leads to homecoming, and AV’s Homecoming will be Friday.

“Spirit Week was earlier this year because most schools have it during the beginning of the school year, and two of our big soccer games were during the beginning of the school year,” band teacher Julie Monroe said.

“We should have better days like twin day and hat day,” Chavez said.

The organizers were exited the way Spirit Week turned out.

“Spirit Week was a great way to kick off the school year, and I am starting to see more school spirit,” Munroe said.
