Ripon High students had a chance to show their enthusiasm with Club Rush Spirit Week.
“Club Rush is an event that starts the school year strong with spirit and excitement to get everyone involved,” said Activities Director Jill Mortensen.
Monday was Sports Day. Students got to wear their favorite sports team apparel or the class color, green.
On Tuesday, they shared their culture or wore the class color, orange.
The class color was blue for Wednesday, with students expressing their support for Military Day.
Thursday was Future Farmers of America Professional Dress day with yellow being the class color.
Friday was met with a flurry of activity. Neon Spirit Day – or students having the option to wear the school colors of red and white – included a free barbecue during lunch and a DJ playing music.
According to Mortensen, the various clubs had membership drives or were out recruiting, including the United Club, Pride Tribe, Estudiantes Unidos, GSA, Girls League, speech and debate, Fanny Pack Club, yearbook, journalism and FFA.
“We ended the week with a huge dance where the expectation (in attendance) was at least 600 students out of a school of 900,” she said.
