Students and staff at Canfield High School went all out to get fired up for the rivalry basketball game versus Poland during Spirit Week Jan. 25-29. Prior to the beginning of the week, a number of students and staff made signs and decorated their respective hallways in their class color to show their school spirit.

Each day had a theme, which encouraged the students to show their spirit. Monday was “Twin Day,” during which students dressed alike in pairs or groups; Tuesday was “Class Color Day,” during which Freshmen dressed in yellow, sophomores in green, juniors in white, seniors in black and staff in red; Wednesday was “Class Themes Day” with the freshmen theme being “Round ‘em Up,” sophomores theme was “Put ‘em to Sleep,” juniors theme was “Military” and the staff theme was “Cardinal Staff Got Game;” Thursday’s all school theme was “Cardinals Are Out of This World,” during which students were encouraged to incorporate aliens, outer space, “Star Wars,” etc. into their outfits and Friday was “Red and Black Day.”

In addition to the school spirit, Spirit Week was also a competition between each class and also the staff. Each day, students were awarded points for participation and points were tracked and the winning group would be announced at the end of the week, with bragging rights as the prize.

“I can feel the energy level of the students and the staff and it is just an amazing feeling. Each class did an awesome job decorating their hallway... there are so many signs, you can barely see the walls. The staff decorated the athletic foyer and they did as great a job as the kids and really put their hearts into it,” said Jacci Duda, Canfield High School guidance secretary.

At the end of the day Friday, a whole school Pep Rally took place to get everyone fired up for the varsity basketball game against Poland that evening.
