We’ve Got Spirit, How ‘Bout You?

It is cool to show spirit for your school

School already takes up our entire lives with the dreadful days that seem to stretch on for eternity, the stressful homework assignments and tests that plummet our grade point average, knowing we could be doing more exciting activities instead of being trapped behind a desk for eight hours.

So why not turn the unpleasant experience around by displaying your support in a spirited and lively way?

Spirit exhibits support and school’s that possess support are more confident which leads to success. It’s as simple as throwing on your school’s t-shirt or encouraging the school’s sports teams.

According to National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), “High school students with “school spirit” perform better academically, are more engaged in social and civic matters, and are happier in general than their less-spirited peers.”

It may be difficult to attend outside activities and afford school spirited clothing, and if this is the case another approach can be to get involved at school. You can be spirited by being involved with all aspects of school.

When you feel apart of a team or even just participating, there’s a new energy that develops and benefits your high school experience because you are passionate about your school.

At Blue Valley High, school spirit is more than engagement, it’s a tradition. We have countless competitions between grade levels to demonstrate our devotion for our school and it’s thrilling.

School spirit shows your love for the school and after awhile you will feel an increase in positivity, pride, and achievement. High school is supposed to be an astonishing experience and you’d be doing yourself a disadvantage if you didn’t kick off your shoes, get comfortable, and root for your four year home.
