Students Show Spirit Decorating Doors

On Monday, Emerson kicked off Spirit Week with the annual door themes in preparation for the Pep Rally on the following Friday. Every year, students in grades 7-12 decorate doors around the school based on a class theme. This year, the juniors took first place in door designs, the seniors took second place, and the sophomores took third place.

Each grade is tasked with decorating five doors on the first day of Spirit Week. This year the freshmen theme was chose to be the freshmen FBI; the sophomore were the Scooby-Doo sophomores; the juniors were the Jack Sparrow juniors; and the seniors were the spooky seniors.

Door themes are decided in the spring for fall pep rallies. Class officers come up with choices and the whole grade votes on whatever theme fits best. The majority vote is the theme for the Fall Pep Rally in the upcoming year. 

“Each faculty member has the opportunity to rate the doors out of creativity and representation of the themes,” said Emerson guidance counselor Karen Biondo. 

The pep rally really gets the students together as a whole. This is a chance to not only support their grade, but also be an Emerson Cavo.

“It makes it more festive because, without it, the themes wouldn’t be as prominent,” said senior Mandy Ding.

The Cavos use the Pep Rally door decorating as a chance to unite, work together, and create bonds with others. It emphasizes the thought of Emerson Junior Senior High School being a safe, happy, fun, environment for not only students, but faculty as well.

“When I am participating in the Pep Rally, it makes the school feel like less of just a school and more of a second home” said Sophomore Julia Seretis

The relationships formed during Spirit Week endure, reminding everyone that, at Emerson, they’re not just students; they’re part of a thriving, supportive, and close-knit community.
