Austintown Fitch High School celebrated Spirit Week in preparation for the football game on Oct. 26 against Cardinal Mooney High School.
Students had various dress up days throughout the week with different themes to celebrate school spirit.
“Its just a fun way for students to prepare for the football game and celebrate the school,” said Brittany Bueno, the Austintown Community Engagement Specialist.
Monday was “meme day” where students dressed up as their favorite memes or vines.
Other days included red, white and blue day on Wednesday, which Bueno said they coordinated with their annual Lunch with a Veteran event.
For each lunch period on Wednesday students sat with 30 veterans who volunteered to speak with students.
Friday students had a pep rally to prepare for the game where the whole student body dressed in all black for “black out” day.
“Its a bonding experience for the whole school, everyone looks forward to it and it’s a lot of fun,” Bueno said.
After school students gathered in the gymnasium to prepare for the game.
The pep rally kicked off with a skit in which the Fitch Falcons overcame the Cardinals before singing the Alma Mater.
The students also broke into teams with two people from each grade level volunteering for a competition.
The groups used scooters and laundry baskets to try to see which grade level could collect the most balloons, with the seniors winning.
The school also hosted a student versus teachers dance off competition with four rounds which students won.
Austintown’s cheerleaders and dance line performed for the school, and the band played a number of songs including the “Office” theme song.
“Every year spirit week is one of the best weeks that we always look forward to,” Bueno said.
