SOUTHEASTERN’S STUDENTS CELEBRATE SPIRIT WEEK
Spirit week is a week of different kinds of activities where students and teachers can participate in things such as tie dye day where students wear their tie dyed colors, school spirit day when you can wear Southeastern’s school spirit, and more. All week long, students were able to showcase their school spirit and fun looks! Monday, February 8th was crazy socks and crazy hair day, Tuesday, February 9th was pajama day, and Wednesday, February 10th was school spirit day. Thursday and Friday, February 11th and 12th, were a repeat of Monday and Tuesday for Cohort Two.
In an interview with senior student Julie Canuto-Depina (Brockton) she revealed she regularly participates in Southeastern’s spirit weeks. She believes that Spirit Week is a good way to destress from school and the stress of COVID. She said, “During these times, school spirit distresses me from all of this work a bit because my head isn’t solely wrapped [around] school work, but I have something to look forward to in school and that is school spirit. Also, I strongly feel that school spirit alone sometimes motivates me to do my work…in a sense, it gives me the motivation to work hard and feel enthusiasm for my school environment.”
At Southeastern, students choose from twenty career majors in preparation for life’s challenges and opportunities. Our school combines a rigorous academic curriculum with state of the art vocational and technical studies to help students realize their full learning potential. The schedule is designed to have students alternate between academic and technical coursework. This process promotes the integration of studies and helps bridge the gap between theoretical and practical experience.
The hands-on approach to learning helps connect students to education and provides the basis for life-long learning – an essential skill in today’s highly competitive global market. Upon graduation, students have the choice of furthering their education in any two or four-year institution or going directly into the workforce.
