This week Hilbert students and staff have been showing off their Hawk pride by participating in Spirit Week.
While the events are not the same as a typical year, school administration has worked to make things as festive as ever, offering prizes to students who participate in at least four of the five spirit day events and tag photos of themselves in their outfits to @Hawktivities on Instagram, long with a hashtag identifying their class year; i.e. #classof2021 for seniors. Students can also certify their participation by showing up to the student activities office in Franciscan Hall to show off their gear.
Dan Heims, the interim director of student activities, said that his office is hoping to make important events like Spirit Week as engaging as possible while also following all safety protocols.
“We have adjusted how we do programming,” Heims said. “Rather than in person interactive programming, we have had to adjust to running ‘take and makes’ as well as more virtual programming.”
Heims said his office are trying to keep these events play out as they would in a normal year, but with a twist to keep them safe.
“We hope that it brings some fun for students, as well as some friendly competition between the different class years,” Heims said. “The students that participate in four out of the five days and are in the class year that earns the most points will win a prize.”
Spirit Week continues through Friday. The themes for each day are as follows:
Monday – comfy pajama day
Tuesday – meme day. Dress up like your favorite meme
Wednesday – flannel day
Thursday – Disney day
Friday – Hawks Pride Day
