On Thursday, September 27, students went back to the past for Decades Day, the fourth day of Spirit Week at Centennial.

Spirit Week is coming to a close and Homecoming is almost here, but all throughout the school students showed their spirit with bright colors, patterns, leather jackets, and tie dye t-shirts.

Tomorrow marks the final day of 2018 Spirit Week, Color Day. To show your spirit for Centennial, wear your class color: freshmen wear black, sophomores wear blue, juniors wear white, and seniors wear red.

Spirit Week: Seniors vs. Freshmen Perspective

Words: Celina Wong

From Monday, September 24, to Friday, September 28, Centennial High School students show their school pride by participating in spirit week. The week is designated for students to celebrate homecoming by dressing up in different themes on each day. The freshmen and the seniors lend their perspectives on how spirit week is for them.

Spirit week is always a highly anticipated week because it offers a break from the regular routine.

“Without spirit week and extracurriculars, school just feels like education. Spirit week makes high school three dimensional,” said senior Alana Germroth.

Seniors set the tone for the school and an example for the underclassmen. Germroth feels that seniors have a significant impact during this iconic week.

“As seniors, I feel like we have to be role models and encourage other people in all grades to do it,” Germroth noted.

For the freshmen, spirit week is a whole new world that they did not experience in middle school.

“We didn’t have spirit week days that were planned out by the school, but now that we’re in high school, we have that opportunity and we want to take it,” stated freshman Michelle Hershfeld and Sarah Arcuri.

This year, a group of freshmen have decided to participate in an alternative spirit week. Student Government Association (SGA) President, Stacy Lee, commented on the most controversial day, gender switch day.

“I definitely don’t think it’s a great idea, but it comes down to you do what you want to do. [SGA] just wants to emphasize that we want people to be respectful to certain groups.”

Seniors are examples for the rest of the school, while freshmen are experiencing a whole new world. Around the school, it is easy to see people, from freshmen to seniors, dressed up in pajamas, or Hawaiian shirts, and especially in their class colors in order to show their school pride.

Students of Centennial High School continue to show great spirit this week as homecoming approaches. For USA Day, many students wore patriotic colors, red, white, and blue, while others were wearing similarly colored Centennial spirit wear.

Students were asked not to wear the American flag as an accessory or cape as it shows disrespect to our country. Fortunately, students complied to that request.

​Centennial’s spirit week is always a popular event since many students and staff participate. With that being said, let’s jump out of the present and travel into the past and enjoy decades day tomorrow.

On Thursday, September 20, the Centennial’s Girls’ Varsity Soccer team took on Wilde Lake High School. The final score was 3-0, the first loss of the season for the Eagles.

Wilde Lake was able to break the Eagle’s back line twice, scoring goals that were very hard to stop. The third goal, though, came from a miscommunication in Centennial’s back line, when a passback to the goalie resulted in the back of the net.

The Eagles will play today at Long Reach High School on Friday, September 21 at 7:00 pm.
