Katelynn Medley ‘20: Once again, charity week rolls around for Romeo High School. This week, students get the opportunity to raise money for a great cause while participating in fun activities with fellow students and staff. Romeo Student Council chose to sponsor Romeo Washington Goodfellows, a charity that hosts food drives and provides for families in need. Activities such as spirit days, penny wars, Mr. Bulldog, the pep rally, Homecoming 2.0, and more take place around the school from January 29 – February 3. A check will be presented to the Romeo Washington Goodfellows Friday afternoon at the annual pep assembly.
This year’s spirit days include:
Monday: Hippie Day
Tuesday: Tired Tuesday
Wednesday: “What You Do” Day
Thursday: Favorite Character Day
Friday: Charity Week Shirts
Charity week provides a perfect opportunity for our community to get together for a great cause.
“I coordinate all the Charity Week events,” Mr. Hinkle, Student Council Advisor said. “I think its an awesome opportunity because it’s all for a good cause and I think it benefits a lot of people, and it makes you feel good.”
Mr. Bulldog, a competition in which male students compete in games, show off their talents, and participate in a trivia challenge, always serves as a great fundraiser. This event always brings a crowd and entertains parents, staff, and most importantly, students. Mr. Bulldog will take place on Wednesday, January 31 in the High School’s auditorium. Later that week, Romeo hosts Homecoming 2.0 on Saturday, February 3 from 7:00 p.m-10:00 p.m. Tickets for the dance will be sold during lunches starting Monday, January 29. Throughout the week, students compete in games and activities to have fun, raise money, and spread awareness. The basketball teams also host raffles and Miracle Minute events during their halftime show, where they pass around buckets and ask the crowd to donate for one minute straight. The same thing takes place during the pep assembly and Mr. Bulldog.
Looking for a way to get involved and raise money for charity? Romeo’s Charity Week provides the perfect opportunity for you. Students raise money for a great cause, all while enjoying themselves throughout the week.
