On the week of January 30 and February 3, 2012, was Keenan’s Coming Home Week. This week was filled with a lot of fun and many different ways that students expressed themselves. The days of Spirit Week were: Monday-Double Trouble Day, Tuesday-Geek Squad Day, Wednesday-Picture Perfect Day (Dress up like a favorite celebrity), Thursday- Oldies Day (dress up like a grandma and or grandpa), and Friday-Blue and Gold (show Raider Pride). Each day was a different way that students showed how much school spirit they had.
“I participated in Oldies Day and Blue and Gold,” Freshman Safari Carter said.
There was a lot of student participation on Nerd Day.
“My favorite day was Nerd Day because it was fun: people dressed different,” Freshman Jaelan Johnson said.
On Friday there was a pep rally. At the pep rally there was a teacher vs. student basketball game. Fouls were made and players shot baskets, but overall the teachers won. Some teachers who played were Mr. Brandon Hopkins, Band Director: Ms. Tonia Young, Mathematics Teacher: and Coach Freddie Solomon, Football Coach.
