Class rivalry goes a step too far Tiera Joseph ’ 14 Staff Writer
It’s all fun and games until someone gets pushed off the red carpet, and I’m not referencing the Emmys or the Oscars, but students trashing Spirit Week because of their disrespect for school tradition and authority. Alleged reports of destruction of property and physically pushing others are beyond childish. It’s unbelievable how a few students took the threeday Spirit Week and turned it into a spirit nightmare. Their peers gave up their entire weekend to work in an unair-conditioned buildin, trying to keep tradition
alive by decorating the halls. Hours upon hours were spent creating the hallway themes for each class. Bet they didn’t think about that when some merrily ripped decorations off the walls. Twitter, a social media site, overflowed with tweets about the junior and senior wars. But it went 10 steps too far when re-
ports started surfacing that some students had the audacity to allegedly destroy property, trash decorations, and vandalize cars. All this in the name of rivalry? In high school there’ll always be class rivalries. But there’s a hierarchy and everyone needs to respect that. It’s the 2012-2013 school year, so that means it’s the seniors’ time to shine, and if you’re not a senior, it’s time for you to “bow down”. Showing the administrators “who’s boss” by boycotting homecoming tickets and creating unauthorized spirit days, didn’t hurt them at all. Instead it hurt future
school-sponsored events. For instance, not going to the homecoming dance will have a domino effect. According to Junior Class president Reagan Drake, next year’s prom ticket prices will skyrocket and junior dues will soar. Come on guys, it is high school. We should’ve learned by now that throwing a temper tantrum doesn’t get your point across. Sometimes attempting to override authority won’t get you the reaction you think you deserve. Self-indulgent behavior must come to an end. Remember we should accept the privileges given to us instead of greedily wanting more.
