Boosters

“My passion for Boosters began when I saw the Boosters reps going all out on my first Spirit Day. I never had any fun events at my old school so when I moved to ISSH in sixth grade and experienced my first Spirit Day, I was fascinated. Ever since then, I’ve been dedicated to Boosters and to dressing up wildly for Spirit Day.

Since becoming one of the Boosters leaders, I’ve recognised that there’s a lot of preparation that goes into each of our events. It takes a lot of planning — which is not always easy when all four of us in the Booster team have different schedules — but when I see our hard working coming together in the end, I feel that it was worth it. I also love that Boosters allows students to give back to our community; the parents and faculty work so hard for events like Family Festival and Bingo so it’s great that we can help them out — even just by doing simple work like trash sorting.

I’m thankful to my Boosters team because they’ve really helped me become more confident as a leader. I used to be really shy in front of other people, but when I’m with my Booster teammates, I feel like I can do anything — including making fun of myself in front of the whole school wearing weird costumes and face paint.” — Tisha

“Just like Tisha, I really looked up to the Booster reps when I was a freshman and thought that I wanted to be like them one day. But, while I was always a fan of them and their Spirit Days, I also knew that I had a couple of my own ideas that I wanted to incorporate into the events. Since running for and joining the Boosters team this year, I’ve been able to achieve that with my team by changing up Spirit Day with new ideas like the grade pep rallies — which I think everybody enjoyed. I was glad to see the Seniors and Juniors dance so energetically and I just hope that the other grades will be down to do it too.

It’s been a lot of fun working with this year’s team. We try out new things even if it means we have more work and I think that’s what makes us so different from the previous reps. This year I feel that, more than Boosters influencing us, we’re the ones influencing Boosters. With our hyper personalities and crazy ideas, the four of us were born for Boosters. And when we come together, we form the ultimate spirit team” — Ena

“I’m in a lot of leadership positions at school this year, but Boosters is different from all of them. While I tend to be practical and serious in my clubs and council, I’m allowed to let all of that go in Boosters and do whatever I want. Since the main goal of Boosters is to raise spirit and have fun, the four of us try our best to think of the most engaging games for the school — even if it means we have to brainstorm some really crazy and unrealistic ideas first.

Spirit assemblies are always hard to organize because they take place at the end of the semester aka the peak of our academic workload. But, like Tisha mentioned, they’re also the best part about being a Boosters rep. I always love seeing everybody’s reactions to our skits and the underclassmen get involved with the upperclassmen — which doesn’t happen too often. The four of us were really happy with all the positive feedback we got from our last Spirit Day and we’re working to organize a similar event that promotes interactions within the school and boosts spirit!” — Noe

“When I was in Middle School, my only goal for the future was to earn the Varsity Jacket and the yellow Boosters T-shirt once I reached High School. I didn’t know what they were doing. I just wanted it. After I attended a couple Spirit Days though, I came to recognise the Boosters Team for more than their outfits. Their skits were funny and well memorised and I could tell they put a lot of work into it. 

I love coming up with the ideas and games for the Spirit Days but, like everybody else mentioned, the planning that follows is difficult. You have to confirm every single detail of the assembly with so many people and it all gets very confusing — I have to use my brain. You also have to make sure everything’s appropriate (which is new for me because in dance, you don’t really have to be appropriate)  

At first I was intimidated by the responsibilities of being a representative, but it’s been a lot more enjoyable than I thought it would be. When our team brings ideas to the teachers, they reply kindly like “Yea that sounds nice!” — it’s quite random and I like that. My team is super fun and that flexibility has brought out the best in our creativities and spirit” — Dayeon
