Poland Regional High School

Friday, Feb. 13 marked Poland Regional High School’s fifth annual Winter Carnival. The week gave a chance for everyone to show their school spirit and to kick back and have a little fun.

Monday kicked off the week with PJ Day. Tuesday was Country Music Day, Wednesday was Rap Day, Thursday was Disco Day, and Friday was Class Color Day. The freshmen were green, sophomores orange, juniors blue, and seniors red.

Thursday after school marked the night of hall decorating. Each class had one of the above-mentioned themes, and had to decorate their hallway with materials brought from home. Decorating could take place only up until 8:00 p.m. and no later. The hallways were then judged first thing on Friday morning, which coincided with the start of the actual Winter Carnival day.

Friday morning we met in roundtables briefly and then proceeded to the gym for the morning assembly. At this time our very own PRHS cheerleaders performed their routine that awarded them first place at the recent state competition.

Following the morning assembly highlighted by class competition tug-o-war was a fun-filled day of activities and competition between all four classes. Some of the activities included: snow softball, limbo, create-a-costume, dance contest, juggling, karaoke, hair styling, arm-wrestling, scrabble, chess, name-that-tune… and lots lots more. In the end the seniors came out to be the winners of the fifth annual PRHS winter carnival.
