To kick off Homecoming Weekend, the Hingham High School student body celebrated with Spirit Week during the week of October 4th to October 8th.
Consistent with tradition, Monday was Class Color Day with freshmen dressing in white, sophomores in black, juniors in blue, and seniors in red.
Tuesday was Decades Day with each grade dressing up in fashion from different decades. The freshmen and sophomores donned their tie-dye and peace sign glasses for the 60s and the 70s, respectively. The juniors wore bright colors for the 80s, and the seniors went all out for the 90s. Among the nostalgic fits were fanny packs, flannel shirts, denim, and others reminiscent of popular culture from the 90s including Friends and Clueless.
The half-day on Wednesday was also Beach Day. Students wore beach attire which included anything from wetsuits to hula skirts and leis.
Perhaps the most popular day was Pajama Day on Thursday. Almost all of the student body and even a few teachers came to school in their comfy pajamas and onesies.
Spirit Week concluded with Red Out Day on Friday, officially kicking off Homecoming Weekend. At the end of the day, Student Council hosted a festive Pep Rally with seniors Luke Macdonald, Bobby Falvey, and Sophia Gervasi as emcees.
Senior Class President Luke Macdonald said of Spirit Week, “I loved seeing everyone participate in Spirit Week and make it feel like it has been in years past.”
Senior Tyler O’Connor expressed her enthusiasm for Spirit Week saying, “I love Spirit Week because seeing everybody dressed up in the halls makes the week so much more fun and exciting!”
For many Seniors, this year’s Spirit Week was better than any in past years. Macdonald agreed, “I personally think that Spirit Week this year may have been the most successful since I’ve been here. On Friday with the Red Out everyone seemed spirited and excited about the event. This carried on through the pep rally, in which all the students were very lively and had an energy that I have missed for a while at the school.”
