Howdy Week- COLOR WARS
by MSM Student Writer Cole Ranck
Classes Begin With Tradition
At Mount St.t Mary an important part of everything that happens is tradition, and this
school year began with the long standing event of "Howdy Week". This tradition which falls
on the second week of classes exists to excite the student body about the year.
Howdy Week 2019 is being celebrated by color wars. Each day of the week students dress
in a different color decided by their class and athletic events. Tuesday, since the
upperclasses wore green and the underclasses wore red, the Rocket volleyball team was
cheered on by fans who donned their best Christmas attire for Christmas in August. The
most festive students were awarded gifts for their participation. Howdy week ends on
Friday with students wearing their Howdy Week t-shirts and this year there are four Howdy
Week t-shirts, red, green, yellow, and purple for each class from freshman through senior.
It has been a fun week week of meeting new friends, making memories and we look forward
to a great year at MSM!
