As Cactus Canyon starts off the new 2011-2012 school year, student council is sponsoring the first spirit week from Aug. 29-Sept. 2.
Spirit week coincides with the year’s first dance, which is Thursday. The events are meant as a way to get students excited about their school.
Campus has been buzzing with students talking to people about the spirit week, leading to hopes that participation will be high.
“The first spirit week usually gets the most participation because people are excited about the beginning of the year,” said Jason Davis, student council administrator. “I think we’ll get more participation this year because students feel like they are a part of Cactus Canyon.”
Students said they are excited about the spirit week because the days are more creative than most of the spirit weeks they have participated in before.
“I honestly think Mustache Monday will be the day with most participants because students in general like to give themselves mustaches,” said eighth grade, Taylor Smith. “I think Tropical Tuesday will get the least participants because not a lot of people like to dress Hawaiian and wear flowers. I’m looking forward to see whether I’m right or wrong.”
The rest of the week includes Wacky Tacky Wednesday, Code Red Thursday, and Fan Friday.
