Proud to be a Hound|
by Jennifer McDevitt
How many students can really say that they are proud to be a greyhound? From what I have seen this year, not very many. It seems that school spirit has become a thing of the past, and is no longer as important as it used to be. When I started high school, school spirit was everything. I was amazed at the reaction of everyone in the assemblies when we did the school cheer or the school clap. I think I have done the school clap once maybe this year in an assembly. I used to be so proud to be a part of something so strong, but it seems that this year it is just starting to fade away. What happened to all the students at the memorial games, with their red and gray clothing and their faces painted? And what happened to actually being proud of your school cheer? It seems to have all disappeared. And for what?? I know it sucks to not be able to have assemblies all together, but we canít let that beat us. The student body of Saint John High school has always been very involved and proud of their school. We need to keep that alive! Saint John High is an amazing school and all of us veterans really need to show the puppy hounds what being a true greyhound is all about. Vita Vitalis!!!
