In preparation for Homecoming on Sept. 15, 2018 the Student Council set spirit week between Sept. 10-14. It is themed around the “Rock of the Ages” and is book ended by the standard Class Color Day and Indian Pride Day.

Spirit week kicked off with class colors on Monday, a staple of spirit week where students wear either blue, yellow, orange, or green as freshmen, sophomores, juniors, or seniors.

“We wanted a really fun theme,” StuCo. Treasurer Emily Akright said. “Something that would be easy for us to decorate for and still be a fun theme.”

According to Akright, the “Rock of the Ages” theme is one that Fort Osage High School won’t see again for another four years in order to avoid repeating the same themes with current students.

Tuesday’s concert t-shirt day, along with Wednesday’s genre day, followed by throwback Thursday, helps celebrate the diverse tastes in music that students as well as teachers share while appreciating the fashion trends and music tastes of different decades.

“It leans more towards rock but it’s kind of anything because we wanted to make it suit anybody,” Akright said. “Everybody can participate.”

Friday, typically referred to as Indian Pride Day, is now dubbed Fort Rocks but remains dedicated to Fort Osage spirit wear.

This is of course the last Homecoming for the Class of 2019. Spirit Week and Homecoming is their way of participating in the school and hanging out with friends one more time.

“It can be fun with the right people,” Senior Ariel Aguilar said. “We won’t have anything like a school dance after high school.”

The graduating classes compete for points with games during the assembly and in the cafeteria. Wearing the clothes to match spirit week also generates points. The winning class will be announced Saturday, Sept. 15 during the Homecoming dance.
