Seaford High School students enthusiastically displayed their “Seaford Pride” from Nov. 9-13 for the annual spirit week celebration. From the freshmen to the seniors, there was lots of participation in the themed dress-up days.
Typically a competition among the four grades, this year the juniors teamed up with the sophomores, and the seniors with the freshmen. Students could earn points for their teams by dressing up for the theme days which included angels and devils, bikers and surfers, and heroes and villains.
The week culminated with Seaford Pride day, as 9th and 12th graders wore green, and 10th and 11th graders came clad in white. It also featured a morning and an afternoon trivia contest, held in the auditorium and streamed via Zoom so all students could watch. Teachers Stephanie Bartkus, Chris Coniglio, Irwin Francus and Robert Maloney captained the student teams.
The main hallway was the center of school spirit, with a green and white balloon arch and streamers, as well as student artwork based on the daily themes. The theme days were selected by the student council in partnership with the class officers.
Senior class President Colin Merrigan said that spirit week was fun and full of energy, and he enjoyed seeing everyone dress up for theme days. He added that the seniors were proud to team up with the freshmen and show the school’s newest students what it means to be a Seaford Viking.
