Taft Eagles show their pride by dressing up throughout the school week of September 24 leading up to the annual 2018 Homecoming game and dance. 

The first day, Monday, was Jersey Day, where students wore their favorite sports team jerseys. According to a student survey conducted by Taft Today, the Chicago Cubs was the most popular sports team and loved by many at Taft. Tuesday was Retro Day in which students picked an era and wore trendy styles of that decade. A majority of the student populace wore tie-dye and trendy 80’s clothes. Students then twinned it up on Wednesday, dressing up as one another and showing that even when there is diversity, there is unity. On Meme/Vine Thursday, everyone was able to wear costumes and outfits from their favorite vine or meme. Friday was Taft Pride Day, an all-time favorite, where students flaunted their school colors.

“I’ve been here for five years and the culture and excitement of everybody showing pride in Taft influenced me to join in from the beginning,” said junior Cristian Florez, Div. 037.

As per tradition, Spirit Week was dedicated to showing Taft pride. Everyone geared up in Taft colors, put their blue warpaint on and bled blue for Taft’s upcoming game against Lincoln Park.  Student Government, sponsored by William McDade, alongside Assistant Principal Ryan Glowacz determined this year’s themes.

Student Government President Sophia Nijem (Div. 928) said, “Our duty is to serve the school. It’s the Student Government’s responsibility as well as the Senior Committee to conduct all of these events. We take pride in what we do and ensured that Spirit Week was a really good week.” 

Spirit Week is a chance for everyone at Taft to come together and represent the school. “Spirit week has been around for at least 20-years. The purpose of it has always been the same: to increase school spirit in preparation for the Homecoming football game and dance,” said Glowacz.

The well-honored tradition of Taft pride is still going strong. Go Eagles!
