With Spirit Week coming to a close, students were given an opportunity to craft their own shirts by stapling, painting, taping, and sewing with the last day, Fashion Friday.
Many students felt that this event gave them the freedom to express their own style by showing off their outfits with their friends and not wearing uniforms.
“I think it’s cool, it shows your creativity,” sixth grader Maria Arniotis said.
Fashion Friday was a day for students to enjoy themselves and have fun, making their own unique style and being confident in what they like. For those who did not craft their own shirts, they wore fashionable clothes instead.
“It was fun because we can make our own shirts and depending on what you wear, it shows your own style,” sixth grader Melissa Bobea said.
The theme for Fashion Friday was created specifically as a “craft day” to avoid situations where students would dress down instead of fashionably.
“My purpose for Fashion Friday was so students could dress in clothing that expresses themselves, like Ruchi [a student] was wearing clothing that involves her culture. But [because] there was an issue on how students could take it as a dress down day, instead they made it a crafty day,” spirit week coordinator Brendon Muniz said.
