The month of October is known for many things at Arthur’s Middle School: Halloween, breast cancer awareness, Homecoming and spirit week. We had five different days to show our school spirit: Monday was get up and go, Tuesday was costume, Wednesday was fake an injury, Thursday, my favorite, pink out, and finishing the week off was blue and gold on Friday.
Almost every student at Arthurs participated in this fun week to show our school spirit. Inspired by Homecoming at the high school, spirit week brings us closer together as a district by bonding each class through their love for Trenton. For the middle school students it’s a great way to show our pride for AMS.
Many people come to the annual homecoming game to support the Trojans. Trenton alumni including recent graduates come back to show their support for the high school team. Current students show their Trenton pride, screaming and yelling so that at the end of the game they’ve lost their voice. Arthurs’ students wear their blue and gold to show they love to watch the hometown Trojans play.
Student participation is always high, but we seem to appreciate pink out, and blue and gold day more than any of the others. Both days were a success, with almost every student in every grade drenched in pink and then continuing on Friday to show the reign of blue and gold in the school. It’s now only matter of time before we are at the high school preparing for our own Homecoming.
