Students and staff at Salisbury High School started the first of many spirit weeks Oct. 7.
Senior advisory sold shirts and SGA chose themes, all leading up to the Homecoming football game Oct. 14 and the dance to follow Oct. 15.
On Oct. 7, Spirit Week began with students dressed in pajamas to share their school spirit. On Oct. 11, students took on the challenge of country vs. country club, either dressing up like a cowboy/cowgirl or someone who goes to a country club. On Oct. 12, the theme is blackout in which students are dressed in all black. On Oct. 13, students will dress up as either a biker or surfer.
To conclude the week on Oct. 14, students will wear their class colors: seniors wear blue, juniors wear red, sophomores wear green and freshmen wear white.
Other than wearing class colors Oct. 14, students and staff will have the pep rally during Falcon period (study hall). Activities at the pep rally will include tug of war, musical chairs, a “Man Dance” (a performance from students in each class) and much more.
Later that night, students in various clubs, activities and sports will walk in the Homecoming parade. The parade will take place 5:30-6:30 p.m. starting at Salisbury Elementary School and ending at the SHS stadium. Clubs and sports teams planning to walk in the parade include Key Club, field hockey, soccer and more.
All community members are welcome to attend and stay for the football game starting 7 p.m. Also at the football game, Homecoming King and Queen will be announced. Seniors on the court are Noah Kichline, Nick Beck, Paul Juhasz, Carl Dyer, Lucas Graver, Toby Linn, Ella Defazio, Mia Bernard, Isabella Natosi and Angela Bitar.
Concluding Homecoming activities Oct. 15, students will attend the Homecoming dance 7-10 p.m. This dance will be held in the SHS old gym and will be decorated by members of different classes. Tickets are available at the door if students haven’t already purchased one.
SHS hopes this week is successful and many students participate in this Spirit Week and the parade. As many other events are planned, be sure to look out for other fundraisers and spirit weeks in the coming weeks.
