Dress Up days: A Mass Collection Of School SpiritTuesday, November 03, 2009 By Jason Miller
We started the week of homecoming with a bang! Everyone rolled outof bed and worked the pj’s. Way to go Crook County High! There were flannel pj’s, Star Wars pj’s, Family Guy pj’s, regular pj’s, ghostly pj’s, and many more. But the most common pajamas out there were flannel pants with slippers. Everyone likes the normal stuff and the slippers were just plain cool. The most stylish pajamas happened to be “footy pajamas”. These are just like those full body pj’s for babies. They cover the baby from head to toe, keeping it snug. The ones worn on Monday were only larger. Now if you had walked into CCHS on Monday afternoon, you would have seldom seen matching pairs of pajamas, clothing, or anything else. Mondays Spirit Contest Team Winners are: 1st place: Seniors; 2nd place: Juniors; 3rd place: Freshman; 4th place: Sophomores. Good job everyone! Tuesday: What do you want to be when you grow up? Tuesday morning began with style. Having a combination of construction worker outfits, OSU and U of O sweatshirts, business suits, rocker shirts and superman costumes, Tuesday was quite a day to be at Crook County HS. I dressed up as a professional guitarist, because I have high hopes that this will someday be my future. Likely, this is why a good deal of kids dressed up for October 19th. Others dressed up for fun and for laughs, but others truly wanted to do that type of career, whatever it was, and nothing could stand in their way. Of course, we did have plenty of “Beavers rule, Ducks drool! “, types of contests and yelling squads of high school students about ready to let loose, but all in all, it was one awesome day. Tuesdays Spirit Contest Team Winners are: 1st place: Seniors; 2nd place: Sophomores; 3rd place: Juniors; 4th place: Freshman. Nice job seniors! Wednesday: Round ‘em up cowboy! On October 23rd, high school kids and teachers alike dressed up for Cowboy/Western Day. There were spurs, chaps (just fancy pant legs), and cowboy hats. No matter where you looked, some sort of western theme was being shown off. A few costumes were highly detailed and at times it seemed that the costumes were hard to tell apart from the real thing. In addition to that, some of the teachers dressed up and the outfits looked quite funny. Mr. C-D, English 9 teacher, dressed up for Wednesday. “I dressed up like a cowboy, but people thought I was a pirate”, stated Mr. C-D in his bright, sunny classroom. Some of the costumes had actual props to go along with theme day. Props such as ropes, spurs, hats from way back when, with chaps included, and the occasional person spoke as if they had come from the past. Even though I don’t know much about cowboys and western outfits, Wednesday was a pretty cool experience. Alright, here is the final score for the Spirit Contest Winners: Seniors: 1st; Juniors: ; Sophomores: ; Freshman: ; Congratulations Seniors and great job on winning Wednesdays Spirit Contest! Thursday: Revenge of the Musicals Likely the most important day of Homecoming week, Theme Day really gave CCHS quite a shake-up. Theme Day means students enrolled in Crook County High put on costumes to express their theme. The main idea for Thursday’s event was musicals. Seniors had Tim Burton’s: The Nightmare Before Christmas, juniors had Grease, sophomores got Aladdin, and the freshman chose The Wizard of Oz. Great styles of Santa Clause, skeletons, ponytail hairdo’s, Cowardly Lions, and multiple others flashed around all day long. Every now and then, you would spot a student (be it freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior) not wearing an outfit to their theme. Not that this is bad, we all forget or don’t have something, but unfortunately there are rare few who full on choose not to participate. One fact that makes everyone proud to go to Crook County High is some students wanted to participate badly enough to tape a piece of paper to their shirts with something written on them. There was a student who had the word “Tornado” taped to their shirt. You know, from the Wizard of OZ. This should make all of us proud to live in a community that goes that far to express spirit. Spirit Contest Winners: Seniors: 1st place; Juniors:2nd place; Sophomores:3rd place; Freshman:4th place. Great ideas for the musicals all of you! Give congrats to the winning class! Friday: Visions of Blue and Gold Students of Crook County High finished the last day of Homecoming week with style. It seemed like a type of disease everyone had on Friday, with all the decorative blue and gold outfits. Normally, Blue and Gold Day is every Friday all year long same as ever. But this day is special; being the Homecoming Finale event, for it is the final Spirit Contest competition. As most of us know, Seniors win the contests 99.99% of the time; and they should whereas they’ve been here for four years participating in nearly every event; but everyone put their best foot forward to win. We all tried hard to win the contest because it seems a little wrong to just give up knowing there is a small chance of getting first. Back on track, some students wore full on blue and gold colors, some wore little bits here and there, and unfortunately, some did wear any colors at all. On the bright side, everyone had a great time and did their best to participate. Are you ready for the final Spirit Contest Team Winners for Homecoming week? Well, here they are: Seniors: 1st place; Juniors: 2nd place; Sophomores: 3rd place; Freshman: 4th place; The seniors are victorious once again and great job to all of the other classes. I am looking forward to next years Homecoming week and am glad to have shared the Dress Up Day results with you and hope the information was somewhat useful to your advantage. Congratulations to all who participated and to those who did not participate, try to do so next year.
