Radnor High School gets into the spirit of football season every year, especially when it comes to the game against their rival, Lower Merion High School. To help spread the cheer, they have several activities during the week leading up to the game against Lower Merion. One thing is the daily “dress up” theme. On Monday this year, the students were invited to wear pajamas to school. Tuesday was Tiki Tuesday. My son not only wore a Hawaiian shirt, but he even carried around his ukulele! Wednesday was USA day, and the students wore red, white, and blue. Thursday was “Throwback Thursday”, of course. My son wore a fifties ‘greaser’ outfit, complete with slicked back hair. Friday was Spirit Day. The students wore Radnor colors or something Disney themed as an alternative.
In addition to the daily ‘costumes’, Spirit Week included a Pep Rally on Friday. I think my son’s favorite part was on Wednesday, though. Not only was it USA Day, it was also Veterans Day. The school invited some local veterans to show a Powerpoint video to the students. My son walked up to one of the veterans after the assembly, thanked the man, and shook his hand. He said the man smiled and said, “God bless you”.
The Pep rally took place on Friday, November 13, the afternoon the day of the game. Radnor won 32 – 0. Because of that, the students had a half day the following Monday, which made them very happy!
