To be completely fair, no student has to wear school colors or participate in spirit week, but for years students have been forced to attend rallies and assemblies. For some, this is not an issue, but to those who find their time at Logan to be solely for themselves, an issue arises. Most students find that they have little school spirit. Having to attend school spirit rallies or to cheer on our football team without choice is somewhat of a burden. Students can parade that halls in cowboy outfits or escaped convicts, but that will have no effect on how much school spirit I posses. Most students are in the same situation.
The basis of my argument is that if students have a choice in having school spirit, shouldn’t we have a choice in participating in spirit activities? It is a false sense of spirit that fills the air of these activities because of this. Students are not forced to go to football games or dances, so spirit activities should be treated the same. It should be up to the student to decide, as it is with other events. Our spirit, our choice.
