Jacob Sprock and John Posey, News Editor, reporter

Monday, Sept. 28 marked the kickoff of the 2020-21 Spirit Week at Saint Louis U. High, and the Student Council did their best to assure it started strong. They started planning the layout of the week in July and attended extra meetings a few weeks beforehand to work out any kinks and do some additional brainstorming. They eventually decided that the theme for the week would be “retro” and that it would consist of three main events: a tailgate on Monday and Tuesday, an open mic night on Wednesday, and a drive-in movie on Friday.
