LAURINBURG — Spirit Week at Carver celebrated the success of fall sports and got the students pumped all week long.
“This week is Spirit Week and we’re celebrating our fall athletics,” said Estella Johnson, Carver cheerleading coach. “We also had a pep rally to celebrate the volleyball team’s championship game and to prepare for the football championship.”
The Carver volleyball team took on Ellerbe Middle School Tuesday and the Carver football team took on Hamlet Middle School Wednesday — both for the Southeastern Middle School Athletic Conference. The winning titles were awarded to both Carver teams.
To honor the Carver volleyball and football teams and all fall athletics, the school decked out in a different outfit each day.
On Monday students wore their wackiest outfits for Tacky Day. Tuesday they wore their favorite college teams’ clothes in support of higher education. Wednesday was the pep rally and school spirit day, for which each child donned the school colors of blue, black and white. Thursday was twin day, which encouraged students to make friends by dressing up the same as another student. The final day was flashback Friday and students rocked the biggest fashion statements from the 50s to the 90s.
A competition was held Wednesday to crown the best dressed king and queen — Antwone Smith and Taylor Goins — of Spirit Week. Students paid 10 cents each to vote, with all proceeds directed to fall athletics. Fall sports include golf, cross country, volleyball, football and cheerleading.
“We’re having a great year and we are very excited about our Carver pride,”Johnson said.
