A glimpse into the freshman vs. sophomore dodgeball game.

One of the most exciting parts of Homecoming week is the annual class color day. Each grade level dresses up in their class color: freshmen wear orange, sophomores wear red, juniors wear green and seniors wear black. Throughout the day, students participate in “tagging” other grades, dress up head-to-toe in their class color and participate in the main event: the class games. 

During the class games, student representatives from each grade level participate in a variety of competitions from obstacle courses to arm wrestling. 

“I enjoy watching the games whether we win or lose,” senior Avary Blazevich said. “It’s just fun.”

For both students and staff, class color day is always a memorable day during spirit week.

“[Class Color Day] is kind of the peak of homecoming…I feel like everybody looks forward to class color day,” said Kathryn Kupchek, one of the co-sponsors of Student Council. 

“I love how everyone comes together to support each other and their class,” junior Claire Young said. “It’s so fun to see everyone going all out to show off their spirit and compete against the other classes.”

Regardless of some tension between classes, class color day unites students through tradition and healthy competition.
