New Haven High School had their T-shirt week between March 19th and the 23rd, encouraging the students and teachers to earn spirit points. For Monday, the theme was Sports and Tuesday Tye-dye. Wednesday was a day to wear Concert T-shirts, Thursday’s theme was College, and Friday was Shamrocks. NHHS was also encouraged to wear crazy socks on Wednesday in support of Down Syndrome Awareness Day.
Students were asked what they thought of T-shirt week, with the inclusion of crazy sock Wednesday, as a whole, and senior Lydia Pataky replied, “I loved it! It was fun to dress up with my friends and earn spirit points for my class.”
“I think it was great! It helped a lot of classes gain some much needed spirit points, and crazy socks Wednesday raised awareness for Down Syndrome,” said Miranda Durbin, junior.
Junior Julia Unnerstall answered, “It was pretty fun overall. I loved the idea of crazy sock Wednesday.”
Kamryn Poe, junior, responded with, “I, of course, love everything that has to do with spirit points. Crazy socks on Wednesday was truly awesome. Just to see how many kids wore socks in order to spread awareness for Down Syndrome Awareness Day was amazing.”
“I think it’s a good idea to get the whole school involved and earn spirit points,” said junior Bradley Glaser.
The next question asked to the students was if they had any favorite days, and junior Diana Ribera replied, “I liked the concert shirt day because all my concert shirts are baggy so I'm actually comfortable during the day.”
“My favorite day was college day because that is a day we don't have very often,” answered Grace Soete, junior.
“All of them were pretty fun. I liked the themes of the days, and crazy sock Wednesday was a pretty fun idea too,” said freshman Ellie Westermeyer.
Freshman Bailey Leuthauser responded, “My favorite day was Wednesday because of crazy sock Wednesday. My brother is disabled so it was great to see some awareness.”
Dorian McCarty, freshman, said, “Sports day was fun and easy to do because almost everyone has a sports shirt or can get one.”
The last question asked to students was if there were any shirts or socks they liked last week, and freshman Chloe Lueckenhoff responded, “There were a couple college shirts that I really liked.”
“I didn’t really see anything that I liked, they were all pretty good,” answered junior Cecelia Malone.
“I love all socks. Usually, I don't wear designed socks, but I loved seeing everyone's socks in support of Down Syndrome Awareness Day,” replied junior Miranda Durbin.
It was a great week of T-shirts and crazy socks at NHHS. Good luck to the students with earning spirit points!
