It is an Emery/Weiner tradition to have one school week fully dedicated to Homecoming. During this week, the students have the ability to wear free-dress clothes as long as they correspond to the respective day of the week.
On Monday, students are allowed to wear clothes they sleep in, on Tuesday, students are allowed to wear any sort of costume, on Wednesday, students are allowed to wear any type of workout clothes, on Thursday, students are allowed to wear mismatched clothes, and then on Friday studentsare meant to wear blue, silver, and white. Typically, the students tend to enjoy the week as it is really nice to be able to have a larger variety of options to wear at school.
Personally, I get tired of having to wear khakis and a polo t-shirt to school and would rather have more freedom to wear other clothes to school. This week also gives students the opportunity to be creative and wear whatever they want to wear. The whole point of Spirit Week is obviously to show spirit, get hyped up and excited for sports at Emery.
During Spirit Week, there is a flag football game played by underclassmen and upperclassmen girls that is always very fun to watch and it’s entertaining for the freshman to watch as they are just getting a feel for the Emery high school. This game is always played on Thursday after school, so that is the second last activity of Spirit Week. Then, on Friday at the end of the day, we like to have a Pep Rally to show off our football team, our cheerleading squad, and some games that show how athletic some of our teachers are. We like to save the best for last.
