James Logan's juniors lead off the Spirit Week class skits Monday. Even though they had less time to prepare than all of the other classes, they still managed to pull together and create an amusing skit. Their story was original, but at the same time held a moral for all people to witness.
The Junior skit featured six secret agents assigned a mission by the president, President Adams. When this mission was assigned, two of the spies got into an argument and decided to try and accomplish the mission with their own squad. After they set out to do their mission, they land on Hawaii. Hula dancers were there to greet them, and before they know it, they have uncovered a plot by a group of villains called the Mean Girls.
The Mean Girls capture the group of spies using their advanced technology and powerful lasers, and lock them up in a prison. They realize that they have to work together and put their differences aside in order to escape, and one of the spies pulls out a lip gloss laser they picked up and work their way out of the clutches of the Mean Girls. When they return home, the president congratulates them on their accomplishes on working as a team.
The junior skit emphasized the true meaning of unity and teamwork. They stressed the fact that trying to accomplish a difficult task on your own is more difficult than gaining the help of your comrades and accomplishing the task as a team.
The number of people who performed in the skit was well more than expected, and the junior class really pulled through and worked together in a short amount of time. They devised a number of dances, including a traditional islander dance, and created a storyline that well represented the Operation Juniors theme. They faded away from operation the board game, and looked to a more popular spy theme to spice things up.
Although the story could have been clearer to the audience, the dancing was enough to sweep them off their feet. The class of 2013 really pulled through to set the tone for the rest of this week by really displaying their class spirit.
