Catholic Schools Week is fast approaching and for Academy students that means Spirit Week! But, with Spirit Week often comes some sort of drama in each grade over what costume to wear each day. Listed below are 10 things that happen in each grade while deciding on costumes:

  1. The grade splits into sections based on what they want to be. 
    • Sophomore Kayla Eckermann says, “I have heard about lots of other grades having problems deciding on costumes, but last year we had our homeroom reps pick our costumes and everyone just went along with it. Hopefully we have the same success this year.”

  2. Watching all the heated arguments on the Facebook wall over the costumes.
    • “The junior class picks their costumes by debating on the Facebook wall. However, there is always some drama when a bunch of people disagree on ideas,” says Olivia Porcaro (11.)

  3. Having to take and then retake about 20 different surveys to decide on one costume.

  4. That one person who shoots down every idea, but never comes up with their own idea.

  5. When your grade finally all agrees on an idea, but it does not get approved.

  7. Trying so hard to keep your grade’s costumes a secret from all the other grades, but it somehow always gets out.
