After last year’s “Ramen controversy” there will be new changes to the rules of the can war point system. Students from opposing teams argued over whether ramen noodles can count as cans. This year, student government decided to award points for every pound of food donated. Every day during spirit week, Mr. Gonsiewski and student government officers will be weighing each team’s food donations. The food collected will be donated to Operation Helping Hands that will distribute the food across Bucks County.
Another change of spirit week is to the coin wars. Instead of awarding the winning team with 50 points, now one point will be awarded for every dollar donated in coins. Unfortunately, only coins will count for points, so no dollar bills will be accepted.
The theme of spirit week, announced during an assembly on Feb. 19, will be “Breakfast of Champions,” where each grade level is assigned a type of cereal as their theme. The seniors will be Lucky Charms, the Juniors will be Fruit Loops, the Sophomores will be Cap’n Crunch, and lastly, the freshman will be Frosted Flakes.
There are many exciting activities planned for the week for students to enjoy. Monday’s theme is Fruit Loops, and students will earn points for dressing in tropical attire.
