With Spirit Week in full affect, students are having a fun time dressing up and showing their Stafford pride.
“Finding out what people are wearing each morning is the best part of the whole week,” SCA President Annie Moncure said, “All the different costumes are always hilarious.”
Spirit Week is a long tradition at many high schools across the country. It always leads up to the Homecoming game and dance.
“Even though our Spirit Week this year is only four days, everyone is still going to enjoy it all,” Moncure said.
This year, there was a small controversy about one of the Spirit Days. Nerd Day was in question because of the stereotype that it attempts to mock.
“People would dress in white shorts, suspenders, high-water pants, and big glasses,” SCA Vice-President B.h. Kim said.
A parent notified the school and Principal Joe Lewis of their concern about Nerd Day and its meaning.
“I really didn’t think it would be that big of a deal, especially since we had Nerd Day last year,” Kim said, “Nerds are cool anyways.”
The sudden change conflicts with students’ plans because many had already prepared for that day.
“I don’t think we should have had to change it. I mean it was only one person,” SCA Parliamentarian William Janney said.
Currently, Nerd day has been changed to Twin day. Students will still be able to dress up and be able to be creative for Twin day just as they would for Nerd day.
