PHHS FANTASTICS (Fun At Night Through Athletic Sports To Increase Class Spirit) is happening today from 7pm to 10pm at the Big Gym.
At this event, all the grade levels gather to play sports and have friendly competition. Everyone shows up donning their class color, preparing to cheer as loudly as possible.
“FANTASTICS is really great because lots of people who aren’t (as) into school spirit all come,” reveals Sophomore Class Publicist Emily Liu.
Every class has skits and decorations based on their theme. This year, 2017 is breaking out of jail, 2018 is bouncing to the classic Space Jam, 2019 is racing to the top with Maze Runner and 2020 is starting their journey with Toy Story.
“I’m really excited for my first FANTASTICS and I hope everyone likes our skit,” comments freshman Victor Xie.
Class officers have been prepping for the event with sports practices, skit rehearsals and decoration making.
“While it’s one of the most fun parts of the year, it’s also the most stressful because you have to get everything together in such a short amount of time,” explains Emily.
To win, a class must earn the most points based off skits, sports, deco, ticket sales and class spirit.
FANTASTICS is a fun way to bring the school together for a night of fun.
“I’m so excited for the school to just get together and feel like a family. Even though it’s a competition, in the end it’s all about school pride,” says Senior Class President Jennifer Lai.
