It’s time for Lake Havasu High School to show its school spirit! With the pep rally, Golden Shovel and Lip Dub fresh in their minds, the students get to enjoy the benefits of spirit week.

Now, what’s so good about spirit week? Well, spirit week is a time when students get to wear their personal clothing choices and dress up for a special event each day of the week. Students are normally ecstatic about the fresh change. “I love how I don’t have to wear the uniform for a week,” said junior Alysta Shaffer. The rules are simple: you can either wear your normal school uniform, or any clothes that match with the day’s category.

Showing the perks of spirit week: juniors Shayna Bhakta, Judy Quang and Dawsyn Kozachenko are dressed up for a Nerd vs. Sports spirit day that occured last year.

Spirit week starts off on Monday, September 23. This spirit day is hosted by AOK club, and it costs $1 to participate in the 80’s theme. The rest of the spirit days are free of charge with Tuesday up next as a Tacky Tourist Day. Then Wednesday is class colors; yellow for freshman, red for sophomores, pink for juniors and dark blue for seniors. Then, Thursday goes back in time to the 70’s. For the very last day of the week it’s Purple and Gold day, a classic that’s on every spirit week Friday. 

So go and enjoy the temporary break from school uniforms and embrace the exciting themes. Show your school spirit, and start thinking about what you want to wear for this special week!
