The penultimate day of Spirit Week 2014 proved that Sturgis East students are as spirited as ever. Halloween Day, another returning favorite, was once again met with resounding success.
Throughout the hallways, there were spooky witches, cats, unicorns, and bunnies. Moreover, students dressed up as Demi Lovato, Darth Vader, Ferris Bueller, and even Santa Claus! One of my personal favorites was the costume of junior Jake LaMotte, who taped dozens of Smarties to his pants and called himself the “Smarty Pants”.
The results have changed slightly leading up to the final day of Spirit Week. The senior class now holds a 50 point lead, but the points will be changing dramatically during the course of Class Colors Day. Here are the point totals as of Thursday:
1st Place: Seniors (1250 points)
2nd Place: Juniors (1200 points)
3rd Place: Sophomores (900 points)
4th Place: Freshmen (650 points)
To cover the final day of Spirit Week, keep an eye out for the Class Colors Day report. May the most spirited grade win!

On Saturday October 24, the Homecoming Dance was held at the Holiday Inn in Hyannis. Tickets for this dance sold out quicker than they have ever sold before! It was a very popular event. Both East and West students from all grades attended and enjoyed the music and atmosphere provided by STUCO. As soon as the dance started, students were already gathering on the dance floor for a great night.
One aspect that many students continually love about STUCO dances is the photography done by Mr. Jarvis Chen. Mr. Chen set up a space for pictures along with fun props in order to add diversity and creative twists to the photos. Photos allow students to remember this wonderful event for years to come.

Thanks to everyone for making this such a great night and start to Spirit Week!
