Leadership Hosts Final Spirit Week from Home

The Leadership class hosted its final spirit week through its @camporedc Instagram account the week of May 11. Titled “Things to do at Home,” daily themes included PJ Day, Netflix Day, Onesie Day and Red Out Day.

Other end-of-year Leadership-sponsored events included a Senior Lunch over Zoom on Thursday and a commemorative “passing of the torch” video on Friday, which featured this year’s spirit commissioners handing over the reigns to next year’s commissioner, junior Laura Studebaker.

The Leadership class viewed the events as a success, citing high levels of participation. Current ASB Commissioner of Social Affairs and future ASB President, junior Sophie Webster, said, “It’s important to have opportunities like this to unite our student body and connect our community in a time when many feel alone.”

“I like the Netflix day because I, along with a lot of other people, have been binging so many shows so I thought it was very relevant to everyone’s lives in quarantine,” added Webster.

Current ASB Co-President senior Brent Avenell added that it was important to provide a final opportunity for graduating seniors to feel connected to the school. “For a lot of students, this was the last time to be part of a school tradition that we used to take for granted,” he said.

Studebaker said that the spirit activities made her feel closer to her peers. “I think this brings our school community together so people don’t feel alone and I personally think it’s fun, gives me something to do,” said Studebaker.

“I feel like seeing others on the [@camporedc] account or on social media doing things that involve school spirit makes me feel like school is actually still happening. It’s fun to see others participate too,” said Studebaker.
