Spirit Week is Coming
Haley Macray, Veritas Web & Features Editor
Although it isn’t easy to believe with the large amounts of snow covering the the ground all over town, spring is nearly here and with spring comes Rockland High’s annual Spirit Week and Pep Rally.
This year the Pep Rally will be organized by Student Government Council Spirit Committee Chair, Caitlin Yannizzi, Head SGC Adviser, Kristen Walsh, RHS’s Athletic Director, Gary Graziano, and Vice Principal, Kathleen Paulding. During the week students will be encouraged to dress accordingly to that day’s theme (see schedule below).
This year’s theme days will give students the opportunity to dress in anything from their favorite Disney gear to best flannel shirt. Although there are many exciting theme days in store, Yannizzi has already chosen here favorite, “I’m looking forward to Disney day because I’m a child [at heart] and anything Disney makes me so happy.”
The theme days will be followed by the Pep Rally on Friday.
“For the Pep Rally we are trying to get more people involved,” says Yannizzi, “That way the whole school gets a chance to show their Rockland Pride.”
After a great Winter sports season with three RHS teams participating in post-season tournament, multiple first place wins by the Cheerleading team, and two members of the Wrestling team competing in the MIAA State Wrestling Tournament, the school has a lot to celebrate and plenty to look forward to in the upcoming season. Spirit Week will allow students to show pride in their school and finish off the week with a fun rally honoring all of this season’s achievements and preparing for next season’s.
