Annual spirit night brings freshmen together

On Friday, September 5, 2014, McNicholas High School hosted its annual Freshmen Spirit Night in the convent courtyard prior to the varsity football game against Anderson High School.

Members from the Class of 2018 participated in a wide range of activities that included face painting, hair spraying, tickets to the game, bus service to and from the game, and food. The night is sponsored by the Admissions Office.

Freshman Spirit Night began as a way to formally welcome the class and continue making them feel a part of the community. Senior and Peer Mentor Molly Kidwell said, “I was expecting the freshmen to be timid and sort of reserved because that’s how I remember our freshman spirit night. Everyone was hesitant to try the games and get into cheers. I was pleasantly surprised by this year’s freshmen. I felt like they tried to get involved as much as possible.”

Students from the Class of 2018 and others involved had a chance to show their spirit through cheers and to meet new people. “This is an opportunity early in the year to bond with each other,” said Director of Admissions Christina Mullis. “It is a chance for them to see that they are all Rockets.”
