It’s Team Purple versus Team White as students and teachers at NHS kick-off Spirit Week today with the first of five theme days – Sports Day.
The week-long competition for school-wide bragging rights pits NHS seniors and freshmen, aka the Purple Team, versus the school’s sophomores and juniors, otherwise known as the White Team. It’s an annual school tradition that features daily trivia contests, the popular Talent Show and Pep Rally and – ultimately – Spirit Night, where the winning team will be announced.
Other theme days this week will include Twin Day Tuesday, Wednesday Hat Day, Celebrity Look-alike Day on Thursday and – of course – Team Color Day on Friday. Spirit Points will be awarded throughout the week for team participation and creativity. Points will also be awarded following the Spirit Week Talent Show – to be held at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday in the auditorium – and Spirit Night, held at 7 p.m. on Friday in the gymnasium.
