Winter Spirit Week wraps up
As Winter Spirit Week concludes, the halls of Heritage are returning to normal. The juniors won the upperclassmen competition and the sophomores won the underclassmen competition.
The winter pep assembly consisted of an obstacle course, lip-syncing competition, a human version of Hungry Hungry Hippos, a class song competition, class dance off and a change war. A popular event among students was the lip-syncing competition. Teachers and students competed to a mashup of songs. Mr. Devine, Ms. Gudewicz, Mr. Ubowski and Ms. DeVries all took the floor during the assembly and represented each class.
For some seniors, the winter pep assembly was one of their last hurrahs of high school.
“Being in the middle of everything and feeling everyone’s energy makes it worth being away from my class. I would say getting to emcee with Hunter Bacon was one of my favorite parts,” comments Rita Passaglia ’15.
On top of coming together as a school for the last pep assembly, the student body of Heritage was giving back to a bigger cause. The Colorado Veterans Project was chosen by student government to be the beneficiaries of the profits raised during Winter Spirit Week.
“The best part of Winter Spirit Week was that we got to honor the individuals who have given up so much of their lives for a greater cause. I don’t know of a better way to honor our veterans than by putting on a high school spirit week and raising money for them,” comments Hunter Bacon ’15.
