From Oct. 8-11, students and faculty celebrated school spirit week.

Many students found it fun and important to participate in spirit week.

“I feel like if you participate in spirit week you are showing off your school and participating in your school more and I think that’s good.  I enjoy having spirit events because it is cool to twin with everyone and it is fun,” ninth grader student council member Alicia Thayer said.

Thayer also believes that having spirit days and student sections affect the students and athletes.

“It more affects the students, the spirit week white out day, it shows all the football players at the white out game that the whole school is supporting them, and they just feel loved and happy,” Thayer said.

The week started off with “Mad For Plaid” on Monday. Tuesday was the color war so seventh wore green, eighth wore blue and ninth wore maroon. Wednesday was college sports day and Thursday was the “white out.”

Sometimes picking out an outfit for a specific day is challenging, but eighth grader Emma Blazer has a strategy.

“For plaid day I just tried to find stuff that had flannel on it, like I had a pair of ripped jeans that had flannel patches on it and I thought that was good,” Blazer said.

Some students look forward to having more events.

“I think we should have a day where everybody wears AAJHS shirts,” Blazer said.

“We could have pep rallies and do more color games and have a bigger student section,” Thayer said.

Hey, how is it going? My name is Kaya, and this is my first year as a reporter on the school Livewire. I joined this class because of my love of photography, although nothing is stronger than my love for Chick-fil-A. My favorite candy bar is definitly Kit-Kats, and I love yogurt parfaits. When I’m not traveling in the summer or going on hikes, I like to go shoping. My favorite thing to shop for is shoes. My favorite season is definitely fall because of the beautiful color and the lovely scents. I hope you learned more about my life and enjoy my articles.
