MORLEY — Morley Stanwood High School students are enjoying a week of school spirit activities leading up to the crowning of the 2016 Snowcoming royalty on Friday, Feb. 5, at halftime during the basketball game.

Snowcoming, structured similiar to Homecoming in the fall, is a way for students to break up the winter doldrums half-way through the school year, said Dale Rogers, high school teacher and student council advisor.

“It gives the students a chance to show school spirit and have fun,” Rogers said.

Throughout the week, when classes weren’t cancelled due to inclement weather, students could dress according to a theme to win spirit points for their grade level. The class with the most points at the end of the week earns bragging rights.

Tuesday was a Star Wars theme, with Dark Side vs. Light Side, allowing teens to select which side of the Force they wanted to support. Thursday’s theme is Hunter vs. Critter and Friday’s will be Blue and Gold. The Snowcoming King and Queen will be crowned at the basketball games on Friday evening, when both boys and girls varsity squads face Hesperia High School. Students also can enjoy a dance on Saturday evening.

“Everyone just comes together and shows school spirit during Snowcoming,” said Rachel McNeil, a senior and student council member. “The atmosphere is fun, and so is being involved with the activities.”

McNeil is looking forward to the basketball games on Friday.

“We’re probably going to have everybody in the student section, all cheering for the Mohawks,” she said. “We’ll get some great school spirit going.”
