LHS students prepare for Battle of the Classes

Alexis Gamache, Editor-In-Chief

Ludlow High School is preparing for what seems to be the most exciting time of the year, where students can pull out their  face paint and craziest outfits in hopes to beat out the competition. That’s right, Battle of the Classes (BTC) Fall Fest is right around the corner. The event will be starting next week Nov. 18-22.

All classes, nine through 12, are competing for points by dressing up in outfits to what fits  the theme that day during the week.

The BTC Fall Fest themes are as follows:

Monday- Plannal Days (flannel or plaid attire)

Tuesday-80’s Day

Wednesday-Class Color Day. Students are encouraged to wear their class color, however, students participating in the Powder Puff game that evening are required to wear their jerseys. The game is taking place at the LHS football field, with an entrance fee of $4 or $3 with a canned good. The first game starts with the freshman taking on the sophomores at 6:00 with a short intermission at 6:45 when ten girls from each team with partake in a four-way tug of war. Ending the night at 7:00 when the juniors take on the seniors.

Thursday- Tie Dye

Friday- Maroon and White Day

This year one spirit week will be held per season starting with Fall Fest, then Winter Spirit, ending the year with Spring Spirit.

The points from these weeks will be combined to award a BTC champion at the end of the year and the winning class will be put on the Battle of the Classes trophy.

“I think spirit week gives the students something to look forward to and puts us in a good mood,” says junior Emily Aniceto, “even if I don’t participate I still get really excited.”
