Falcons Bring Their A-Game for Spirit Week

Ferguson students were ready to display their creative side through the announcement of this year’s Spirit Week themes. Students were able to show their school spirit through their participation in this year’s Spirit Week. 

This year’s Spirit Week took place from October 21st through the 25th. This event creates a week of big fun at Ferguson, rather than wearing the dull school uniforms, students can dress up in each day’s theme. 

Spirit Week is a great opportunity for students to express themselves and dress out of the norm. The excitement in the air was palpable as students arrived in costumes for themes such as Tacky Tourist and Decades Day. Students were totally loving it, “I absolutely love Spirit Week. I think it is amazing and can really bring up someone’s ‘spirits’  whenever I think about it, I get excited thinking about what I’m going to wear. I am honestly so happy that Spirit Week exists,” shared ninth grader, Andrea Alvarez. 

Freshman, Brandon Pham, commented, “In my opinion, I believe that Spirit Week is a week to show school spirit and to make us all feel like we are in a great community. It is so cool to dress up rather than to wear school uniform”  

Spirit Week began on Monday with Decades Day. On this day, students dressed in the attire of their favorite decades. Students that love the 80’s came dressed up in fluorescent clothing and leg warmers. The next day, Tuesday, was Tacky Tourist Day. Students came dressed in Hawaiian shirts, khaki shorts, and sunglasses. 

Wednesday was Freaky Not Friday. Students interpreted this event in two ways, some came dressed up as one of their friends or as the opposite sex. During lunch each day of Spirit Week, there was an activity to look forward to, anything from a dance party to a fashion show. 

Spirit Week came to an end with Black Out Day and an awesome pep rally on Thursday. For Black Out Day, students can display their most creative all black outfit. Students wore black tutus, face paint, capes, and spirit shirts.

 This event only happens once a year, so if you didn’t participate this year, you’ll have to wait until next. We hope you got your Falcon school spirit on for Spirit Week!
