While they probably had spirit days in middle school, on Monday the freshmen got a taste of what Woodside Spirit is like. Only 139 freshmen out of a total 479 were accounted for at lunchtime, putting them in fourth place. At lunchtime there was also musical chairs, in which all grades participated. However, two sophomores won that battle: Matt Grandov and Anthony Delacruz. Don’t worry, freshmen, there will be a chance to make up for your lack of spirit next year, as sophomores. While the freshmen walked around school in white, the seniors had their first Secret Senior day. The theme was music genre.
The school took a turn for the dark side on Tuesday, with all the sophomores wearing black. Out of a total 408, 222 of them congregated in the Quad to be counted. All throughout the day the seniors were trying to intimidate them by saying things about how bad they going to beat them during lunch. As for the seniors, it was Epic Movie Day. There were people dressed up in everything from Napoleon Dynamite to Spongebob Square Pants. Meanwhile, the Homecoming Polls opened and people began to vote for their court.
Juniors came to school and outdid the sophomores, by just a little bit. At lunch, when they did the quad count a total of 285 were accounted for out of 451 students in the 2013 class. The Juniors showed what they think of school spirit. It was another secret day for the seniors: Dynamic Duo Day. They dressed up in paired costumes, being everything from Avatars to Gingerbread men
There was a sea of black, white, and orange parading around campus as the seniors showed their spirit. Students came to school as early as 5:30 in the morning to set up the parking lot, even cooking breakfast and making a playhouse. After the parking lot they moved to the MUR where they basically threw a party. At this point some seniors had been dancing for hours. When 8:45 came around it was time for the senior run. All seniors gathered in the MUR and ran to the parking lot. They ran down the hallways, pounding on classroom doors, making sure their presence was noticed. The halls echoed with, “You wish you were a senior, Hoo! Haa! You wish you were a senior, Hoo! Haa!” Finally lunchtime came and it was time for the quad count. Of course, the seniors totally outdid all the other classes with 314 out of 463 students.
Students of all classes came dressed up in what their theme was for the day. In the school-wide rally, all the classes preformed a skit of their own. Even the teachers performed, every one of them shuffling to the LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem. Who knew that our staff could shuffle? The skits were well received and afterwards there was dancing in the quad.
