The PRIDE program is relatively well known throughout the school for it’s focus on school ethics and proper behavior. However, in the coming weeks, the high school will be using PRIDE periods to promote school spirit and get students ready for the holiday season that is fast approaching.
Like last year, Red Lion Area High School will be engaging in many activities related to the holiday season. These activities include decorating hallways, crafting cards, and even just doing holiday related things. Although, these activities will replace the PRIDE lessons during activity days, they are aimed to tie into the PRIDE morals and values, all the while further promoting a healthy school environment.
‘We will be doing a lot of cool stuff,” says Mrs. Rohrbaugh. “I am really looking forward to pulling everyone together with the activities we have planned”.
Certain projects that will be undertaken during the next few weeks will not only promote school spirit, but also bring joy to those who need it most, and in particular, children whom are very sick. This is where the PRIDE period really shines; not only are students decorating their school with lights and paper cutouts, but are also sharing the experience with children in need, and making their day feel brighter.
All in all, PRIDE activity periods will be looking to promote a healthy holiday environment, and encourage school spirit in uniting students of all classes through common and uncommon ways. And even though the sparking of hallway rivalries is always interesting, hopefully students won’t get too caught up in the calamity, and not forget why they are doing what they’re doing in the first place.
