Class cup introduced
The Student Leadership Team has created the Class Cup competition to bolster student spirit and pride in the school as part of the PBIS initiatives established for students last school year.
“The [SLT] came up with the idea of promoting school spirit and pride in the school in terms of the locker banks and the cafeteria,” SLT sponsor Chris Dunback said. “That comes … with pride, that comes with loving the home team. It’s providing an incentive to the class that supports our school the most.”
The SLT has decided that the first quarter reward will be a Fall Festival. According to Dunback, this will be something along the lines of a celebratory day away from school as a reward for the class with the most points.
Sophomore SLT member Mitch Perkins thinks the competition is supposed to improve school unity.
“[Our goal is] to have more school spirit and unite the classes,” Perkins said.
Junior Tori Kilkenny thinks the competition shows promise.
“I think it will work if they can get the other classes involved because it normally seems like just a spirit competition between the juniors and seniors,” Kilkenny said.
SLT sponsor Ashley Agre hopes the incentives successfully develop school spirit.
“There’s nothing wrong with having pride in your school and being proud about being a Mill Valley Jaguar,” Agre said. “It’s part of your identity. Embrace it.”
