With homecoming week done and gone for the year, I have come to the realization that there is a serious lack of school spirit throughout the SGHS hallways. I understand that pep club mainly consists of cheerleaders, and Ryan Morgan, however that does not mean that students can’t show their school spirit. The pep club votes and decides on spirit days for the week of homecoming, or tournaments, but they are rarely ever acted upon. On royalty day there were a few girls wearing tiaras or old prom dresses, but nothing close to the entire school being peppy and full of spirit. I realize that sometimes the spirit days don’t necessarily work with your wardrobe, or schedule, but going to the Family Dollar and buying a pack of paper crowns does not take much time or effort. Without school spirit, there is no support to whatever team is playing that night, which causes a lack of belief in their ability to do well. Not only are dress up days to show the team support, they are to have fun and enjoy your spirit week. You may think that showing up to school in a seemingly ridiculous ensemble makes you weird and embarrassing, but take it from someone who wears those ridiculous outfits, it doesn’t. To be honest, I get more grief for not dressing up than I do for wearing a tutu to school. Not to be the cliche person who thinks that ball is life, but there isn’t really much else to look forward to throughout the school week. Also, take into consideration that you only have four years of high school, and after those four years are you really going to care what that one person, in that one class, said to you about the cape you were wearing? The chances are that you won’t, you may even regret not living your high school days to the fullest. So, the next time you see the signs posted around school with the dress up days displayed, take a look, and consider participating in support of everyone’s favorite team, go Herders.
