Spirit week is seen as a stress reliever and a source of fun for students and staff. RBHS has days like jersey day and era day, when students competed to see who could have the best outfit amongst their peers.

This week is run by Student Association, the group that strives to bring students closer together and make the overall school atmosphere better. Dress up days and door decoration were part of the homecoming fun. 

“I absolutely loved it. It was student planned, student-created, and student implemented,” said RBHS principal Dr. Hector Freytas. 

The first year principal claims that his first spirit week was a good one and that he couldn’t think of anything better than what the students did. Spirit week even helped build bonds between the student body and faculty. 

”I think that this was an experience that brought us closer together,” said Freytas.

The door decorating competition allowed the teachers to join the festivities as well.The creativity around the school blossomed and the door decorating competition was even brought to attention on the social media website ¨TikTok,” and the video ranked up to over 47.5k likes. 

The cafeteria also got involved by providing new food options like the ¨Bulldog Burger,¨ which was a hit for the students. Some of the specials included enlarged portions for a ¨Bulldog¨, extra sides, and other things as well.  

¨I think that new food options that are fun and creative with the day of the week helped the school have more enjoyment in every aspect of school,” said sophomore Tommy Tepavchevich. 

Although many students thought the spirit week was amazing, it did receive some mixed opinions for some. 

¨I think that spirit week could’ve been better because we have the same spirit days every year. We need to change it up a little. No one wears anything for decades day and god forbid dress like a celebrity day,” said junior Marshall Jebb.
