Spirit Week


Amani Jackson, Staff Writer

Almost every high school in America has one week of absolute fun, ending with an energy filled football game. It’s a week to show school spirit and pride students have toward their school, even if students may not like their school. This week is excessively celebrated by seniors since this will be their last year. “The fact that I’m a senior and it’s my last chance to wild out makes me excited for spirt week,”

explained Chelsey Adedoyin (12th), “Being a senior definitely makes it better, because more people participate and it gives students an excuse to be extremely crazy this week.”

Spirit Week kicked off last Monday, and the halls were full of img_1675colorful and creative students. Mix-Match is a recurring spirit day at North Point. Students get to wear what they want and express themselves without prejudice. Tuesday was Twin day. The senior class came up with many ideas to coordinate with Twin day, but loss of communication caused a lot of confusion. Some seniors were Pacman characters, while others wore red. Wednesday was Decades day/dig pink. Dig Pink, sponsored by North Point High School’s volleyball team, is a day students wear all pink and attend the volleyball game in support of breast cancer.

Thursday is the day almost everyone is waiting for, and it’s Character day. Character day,img_2260 which is basically Halloween, is a day the whole school can act silly and dress up as anyone they want. But the dress code does limit some students’ creativity, for instance, full face paint was not accepted and masks weren’t either, but students wore them anyway.

A group of seniors had kept the NPSN legacy and frequently make short clips of Spirit Week to show North Point’s school spirit. While many students went all out to show school spirit, others didn’t, especially underclassmen. “I feel as if everyone should participate especially the freshman who don’t participate because they will regret not showing any school spirit once they finally learn how lit North Point is,” Chelsey Adedoyin ended.
