After months of coordinating, CCHS’ Spotify-themed spring spirit week finally came to life during the week of March 9 through the 13. The Student Government Association (SGA) took it upon themselves to create dress-up days that coordinated with hit songs that students could relate to.
“This is the last spirit week during my time at CCHS and I made it a priority to make it one students will always remember,” SGA president Taylor Pinna said. “Giving students the opportunity to let loose and enjoy their high school experience is always a goal of SGA and we did just that.”
Even though there currently aren’t any known cases of COVID-19 in Cooper City, SGA felt it would be the best course of action to postpone the pep rally to a further date.
One of the most notable and exciting aspects of spirit week is the attire that students show up to school in. While typical school attire may be classified as just a sweatshirt and jeans, students arrived throughout the five spirit days decked out in their favorite spirit wear resembling the Spotify theme. Each day was dedicated to a different song.
“I look forward to dressing up for spring spirit week because it gives me the opportunity to dress up with my friends and have fun,” Class of 2023 Secretary Sophia Safrin said.
The week began with the song “Suit and Tie” representing dress up versus dress down day, where students choose to either come in their favorite sleepwear or fancy outfit.
On Tuesday, the featured song was “Colors” and CCHS students filled the halls with tie-dye. On “Workout” Wednesday, students came to school in workout gear. The following day, paired with the theme of the song “Fight Song,” students dressed in a color to support a cause of their choosing.
The final spirit day was represented by the song “All I Do Is Win,” where students had the opportunity to represent their favorite sports teams in a jersey or uniform.
However, SGA continues to stay positive throughout the process and believes that the pep rally will occur towards the end of April.
Although most spirit weeks conclude with a celebratory pep rally, this year’s spring spirit week was interrupted due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, or COVID-19. Even though there currently aren’t any known cases of COVID-19 in Cooper City, SGA felt it would be the best course of action to postpone the pep rally to a further date.
“Of course there is some sadness to it because we have been working for the last two or three weeks,” SGA advisor Natalie Flaten said. “But this was definitely the best course of action because we would rather students enjoy the pep rally without any concerns than have the underlying feeling of, ‘Should we be doing this?’”
However, SGA continues to stay positive throughout the process and believes that the pep rally will occur towards the end of April. Even though the five days didn’t conclude with the highly anticipated pep rally, it is safe to say that the spring spirit week was an excitement-filled week.
