Student council decorates halls for WoCo Spirit Week

Despite changes to the traditional WoCo activities, StuCo still wants to promote school spirit through decorating Sunday, Jan. 28

Student council decorated the hall for this year’s WoCo spirit week Sunday, Jan. 28. However, this year’s celebrations look a little different, replacing the traditional dance with a trivia night.

Student council sponsor Tina Keith discussed the inspiration for the week and the decorations.

“[Students] are decorating to bring in WoCo with a spirit week,” Keith said. “We have all the different movie themes for each of the hallways and then a photo booth for Wednesday’s Barbie Day, so [Student Council] is going all out for that.”

Junior Addison Long discusses how the theme of the week relates to the trivia night.

“It’s a movie theme, since it’s a trivia night and we’re going to be doing a lot of questions about [movies],” Long said.

Student body vice president senior Preston Fischer explains why it’s important to decorate for spirit weeks. 

[Decorating] is to get everyone in spirit and change things up for a week. It gives the students something new to like to look at instead of the bland old hallways.

“[Decorating] is to get everyone in spirit and change things up for a week,” Fischer said. “It gives the students something new to like to look at instead of the bland old hallways.”

Keith agreed with Fischer’s statement about the importance of decorating the building for special events.

“[Decorating] will jog their memory so that [students] remember to dress up for all the spirit days and then participate,” Keith said. 

Long explains why it was important to her to put in the effort to decorate, saying she wants it to be as successful as possible.

“I want everyone to be excited,” Long said. “I’m really excited for this event and I just want everything to turn out super good.” 

Keith agreed with Long, saying that with the new trivia event replacing a dance, it is even more important to make this year’s WoCo a success.

“We’re doing trivia night for the first time ever,” Keith said. “We’re really excited about doing it and we want people to get involved and come to that. We’re doing whatever we can do to encourage kids to show up.”
