Monday (Pajama Day): Fuzzy slippers and onesies galore filled the hallways of MHS to kick off the 2018 Spirit Week in style. Students rocked their comfiest attire from home including outfits from famous brands/movies such as Star Wars and even interesting onesies such as Cookie Monster from the classic Sesame Street. Crocs, (flip) flops, and crazy socks added to the wacky atmosphere of pajama day and made this year shine above all others from the past. MHS students and teachers will never get too old for pajama day.

Tuesday (Character Day): Halloween came early this year at MHS as Spirit Week swept through the school with students showing their favorite characters from a wide variety of sources including literature, film, and even the Bible. The options ranged from simply wearing a shirt with a character’s symbol on it to coming in decked out in full costume. Some students were extremely passionate about this day, while other students not so much. The high school’s radio station, WMHS, played “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” by Randy Newman, which is featured in Toy Story. The rest of the schedule is as follows: Wednesday is Hawaiian Shirt Day, Thursday is Throwback Thursday, and Friday is Chief Day.

Wednesday (Hawaiian Shirt Day): Aloha! On Wednesday October 17th, Massapequa students traveled across the globe to try on their next wardrobe. Hawaiian theme day was in full swing! Students were wearing some Hawaiian inspired clothing and accessories. The clothing reminded many students of the great summer that has passed, especially since the cold arrived that morning. Students wore leis, straw skirts, and hawaiian flowered shirts to show their school spirit. Many students chose to wear a combination of these pieces, each vibrant with colors. The colors brought some warmth to approaching winter months that will soon be upon Massapequa.

Thursday (Throwback Thursday): Massapequa kicked it old school on Thursday as many students dressed up in the garb of their favorite decades. Some students decided to dress up in leather jackets and bright red lipstick for the ‘50s. Some other students were bright and bold in iconic rainbow patterns of the ‘70s. Heelys and mullets also made a comeback to represent the ‘80s. Some students showed the culture of the ‘90s by representing a “‘90s kid” and dressed in MTV t-shirts. Throwback Thursday was a smashing hit for teachers and students alike and proved that each decade has made its mark on society.

Friday (Chief Day): MHS became a sea of blue and gold on Friday in preparation for pep rally and Saturday’s homecoming game. Students wore their Chief best and some went a step further and used blue and gold face paint. Student athletes showed off their team spirit in their uniforms. As is tradition, the WMHS Broadcasting Club played the iconic remix of “I’m Blue” by Eiffel 65 and added in “and gold” for a special twist on the song. Teachers even joined in on the day by wearing their own Chief apparel. During pep rally, the entire gym showed their support for MHS athletes and the homecoming court. The ASL students showed off their spirit and skills by signing the National Anthem. The Chiefettes put on an amazing performance, as did the Massapequa Cheerleaders and the band played covers of songs from Pixar favorites to get everyone hyped. Out of all the Spirit Week days, Chief Day has always been a favorite among students and teachers and never fails to get people active in fun school festivities.
