As you walk into school, the first thing you usually see is the principal smiling and saying, “Good Morning.”  However, during Spirit Week, students were greeted by black and gold decorations, and the excitement of Spirit Week.

On Monday, students were on island time with Hawaiian Day.

“I liked the originality of it,” junior Courtney Branch said.

Monday also had the Art Competition. Each class was given a section of the windows next to the courtyard to decorate.  Each class showed creativity, and the junior class took first place with their creative design. The freshman class was also recognized with a second place finish.

Many students were excited for Tuesday’s Character Day.  There was a range of costumes from SpongeBob Squarepants to memes like Area 51 to My Little Ponies.   “My friends and I dressed up as Boo, Mike, and Sully from Monsters, Inc,” freshman Anna Hafer said.

“It was really fun planning my costume,” senior Helen Lortie said. “I came in as Bob Ross.”

Wednesday included the perfect chance for students to show off their school spirit with Black and Gold Day.
Black and Gold Day is a favorite among students because it is the best time to show off their JC garb. Looking through the halls, it was easy to see how.

Wednesday’s activity was a school-wide ring hunt to find ten large John Carroll rings hidden in the school. Clues were shared by Mr. Hollin during announcements and through email.

The clues were anything from “Just think you could make history this year if you find the ring!” (hidden in Mr. Del Puppo’s room) to

“If you are hungry for the prize, then look inside” (hidden in the cafeteria).

The winners received points for their classes as well as Dunkin’ Donuts gift cards. Everyone excitedly ran through the school looking for the rings, and at the end of the day, the junior and senior classes were tied for first place with each finding five rings.   “I had fun looking for the rings,” junior Julianne Moccia said.

On Thursday’s Age Day, the school was filled with individuals from all generations.

“Age Day is definitely one of my favorites,” sophomore Leigh Deal said.

Seniors dressed up as senior citizens, juniors as working adults, sophomores as toddlers, and freshman as babies.

The Quiz Bowl also took place on Thursday. This was a trivia game where students from each grade level competed with each other. 

The winning class went against the faculty.   This year, the juniors went head to head with the faculty and lost.

Friday was Class Color Day, where each class dressed up in their colors. Freshmen wore white, sophomores wore red, juniors wore blue, and seniors wore green.

“I liked seeing the whole school participating,” sophomore Rosalie McGuirk said.

Friday also included the Pep Rally and the Powderpuff game between the junior and senior girls. The senior girls were victorious over the juniors with a final score of 22-20.
