In an effort to raise school spirit, the class councils started Falcon Fridays. The Fridays are supposed to cycle throughout the months with seniors in October, juniors in November, sophomores in December and freshmen in January. The cycle will restart after January.
“We will hold Falcon Fridays once a month on Fridays of course,” junior class advisor Mr. Chad Zwolinski said. “Every month will rotate between each classes.”
Even with the cycle, Mr. Zwolinski thinks making spirit a point even after spirit week is over will be a challenge.
“Getting kids involved when it’s spirit week is easier than when it isn’t,” Mr. Zwolinski said. “We need to come up with incentives and ways to advertise Falcon Fridays.”
The new food restriction law limits the sort of incentives each class can use.
“Food has always been a huge incentive for kids; kids love food,” Mr. Zwolinski said. “The new food law has destroyed all incentive and makes it hard on us.”
Even with the ban on food, Mr. Zwolinski thinks it is possible to motivate kids to get involved.
“There will be games and activities that students can participate in during lunch,” Mr. Zwolinski said. “Colors will also be assigned to classes that will be worn on Falcon Fridays.”
Through implementing Falcon Fridays, Mr. Zwolinski aims to keep school spirit strong throughout the entire year.
“We want the school to raise spirit even when spirit week is over,” Mr. Zwolinski said. “We want spirit week to be constant thing when times are not spirited.”
