Class competitions continue, each grade fair chance at winning

Blood, sweat and tears.
Students will go to just about anything in order to beat other grade levels in the class competition.
But is the judging fair?
Assistant Principal Mollie McNally said that while she finds teachers to judge, STUCO decides on the different competitions and Jessica Janish keeps track of points.
The class with the most points at the end of the school year gets a day off of school to go bowling.
She said the closest competition always occurs during the class cheers.
“It can be really close sometimes,” she said. “But if you listen closely, you can usually tell who wins.”
McNally said all the events are completely fair, despite student doubt.
“The seniors don’t always win,” she said. “The sophomores won the the float competition this year, and there’s no way that’s rigged. When it comes down to it, the best class wins.”
Some of the different events so far this year include class cheers at pep rallies, Homecoming floats and spirit days.
“It’s a great way to get more school spirit,” she said. “Winning is definitely a motivating factor. It creates competition and makes the kids willing to get more involved.”
The class dance off, held at the Sadie Hawkins assembly every year, will be the next event of this school year.
