Sadies Week, also known as the seniors’ last spirit week, is beloved by most. For those who don’t know, the Sadies dance, started in 1938, falls under the premise that this is the chance for girls to ask the boys, as opposed to the typical traditions.
This week is sacred to most seniors, as it’s their last spirit week and all-school dance. It’s the last time that they’ll ever share a dance with underclassmen. So, it’s a fairly significant week to most seniors.
This year, the Sadies Week theme is Star Wars. However, most of the spirit days for the week are the same as last years’ and the year before that are very similar. Typically, the spirit week goes like this: Monday is PJ day, which is beloved by all students, Tuesday is -ER day, Wed. relates to the theme and Thursday is college day. While the repetition isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it’s funny how the more things change, the more they stay the same.
Senior McKenna Crowe doesn’t plan on going to the dance this Friday. “I know that by the end of the week I’ll be tired and just kinda wanna stay home and hang out. I’m not upset whatsoever [that I’m not going].”
On the other hand, senior James Lamb plans on going to the dance with some of his friends. “It’s my last one, I enjoy feeling like part of the school and being involved in the events and it’s a lot of fun because you get to hang out with your friends.”
In addition to it being the seniors’ last all school dance, it’s the seniors’ last rally before senior rally; the close of their high school careers is looming in on them.
“I would say I’m sad [it’s almost over], but it’s more like I’m really excited because I wanna feel pumped up and win it,” James said.
McKenna is also feeling this, “I’m happier that I’m getting close to graduating, but at the same time, it makes me think ‘wow, it’s the end of an era.’”
Whether or not you plan on going to the dance, it seems that the seniors’ last all-school dance will be a fun and cheerful event, despite it being seniors’ last. The dance starts at 8 p.m. Friday night.
