This year, Redwood High School will be holding its second Love Week ever. The dates for this year’s Love Week is February 14th to February 17th. Love Week was something that began last year, and the week consists of dress up days and lunchtime activities. This year, Tuesday’s dress up day is dedicated to your current relationship status. Wear white if you’re single, pink if you’re talking, red if you’re taken, and gray is for those who can’t be held down! Wednesday is called ‘Date Night Day’, where you wear what you would on a date with a loved one. Thursday is squad goals day, where you dress up together with the rest of your ‘squad’. Friday is school spirit day, so wear all blue to share the Ranger Love!
Kenneth O’Leary, ‘18, said that he thinks Love Week is important because it shows how caring people are on campus. O’Leary said “The biggest challenge this year is putting up the hearts because some of the buildings were repainted over the summer, and that makes it more challenging to put tape on the newly painted buildings.”
Bryanna Martinez, ‘17, said the main purpose of Love Week is to spread love and positivity throughout the school. Martinez went on to say that it can often be difficult to stay motivated during second semester, and it is important to show appreciation for the student body and staff. Martinez said that last years Love Week received a significant amount of positive feedback that Redwood ASB decided to keep the tradition going on. Martinez also said “For Valentine’s Day, we usually make a heart of every Ranger and saw the little thing as a great opportunity to make a spirit week dedicated to love.”
Jennifer Calderon, ‘17, said that the biggest struggle during this love week was that Redwood ASB had to split into two groups, one dedicated to the talent show, and the other dedicated to Love Week. Calderon said “I think Love Week is important because it represents the love that students have for Redwood High School and the people around them.”
