Homecoming - A Huge Success
By: Sophomore, Olivia Charette
Homecoming weekend was a huge success for everyone in Gardner. Four teams played during the varsity-filled day including: varsity field hockey, varsity girls’ soccer, varsity boys’ soccer, and football.
Some classes even took the opportunity to fundraise : The sophomore class helped out with concessions during the field hockey and soccer games, and there was also fundraising for the 8th graders’ New York trip.
All four teams played great games: field hockey played first against Murdock, the final score being 2-0 with the win going to Gardner. Next was the girls’ soccer game against West Boylston, where the final score was 3-0, with us winning. Then the boys’ soccer game against Murdock had a final score of 9-0; Gardner’s win. The last game that night was football, who versed Ayer Shirley and won with a final score of 28-6.
The band performed their show, Cirque du Soleil: Journey of Man, and was accompanied by the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade bands for Louie Louie and Glory to Gardner.
Cheerleaders, band members, and the Gardner student section really brought the spirit, cheering loud for their Wildcats. After the game, there was a bonfire in the back of the school (shown above), where we continued to show our school pride.
Overall, Homecoming weekend was a great success and we all look forward to what the Wildcats have in store for Homecoming Weekend next year!
Spirit Week - Showing our pride!
A Spirit Week from a Student's Perspective
By: Senior, Hannah Bushee
This spirit week was full of fun and excitement, which is no surprise as it's always the most colorful and creative week of the school year.
Starting off with twin day, there was a lot of creative ideas and laughs from everyone. The day was all about twinning with a friend and showing off each other's outfits to everyone. Being able to dress up with friends with each others creative ideas in their favorite twin outfits or duo inspired costume is an extremely enjoyable time.
The next day was red, white, and blue day, a day of honoring the colors of America. Everyone looked into their closets to find anything with red, white or blue to show off their own school spirit and pride.
The day after was athlete vs. mathlete. Some people dressed up as an athlete with jerseys, basketball shorts and sneakers to look like your stereotypical jock and ready to be active . Then there was the other side, which was mathlete with people dressing in suspenders, knee high socks, converse and glasses to top it all off, to look like your average nerd and ready for school.
The last day was for our school pride with the colors of Gardner High, home of the wildcat, black and orange. Everyone went all out showing off their school spirit.
The whole week was full of new and creative styles, along with people being able to show off outfits they usually wouldn’t wear. Everyone has fun with each day and are very excited to wear the outfits they created for everyone to see.
