PRIDE: Student Section Etiquette

A guide and reminder on how to implement PRIDE into our student section
PRIDE%3A+Student+Section+Etiquette

Nov. 21 was the annual Turkey Bowl, and marked 100 years of boys Pirate basketball. At this event the St. Charles High students came out to show support. While attempting to encourage excitement in the games, a freshman in the band’s saxophone broke. Through people pushing and trying to get a spot in the front, the saxophone was knocked over and a $150 key was broken. 

The student section is divided into two parts by a line of caution tape put up by Activities Director Ben Owens. Owens is not in favor of moving the student section or the band on account of it forces the parents to sit behind either the students or next tothe band. 

“Everybody disregarded that [caution line], especially seniors that came in late. [They] kind of just sat wherever they wanted… Instead of going up the bleachers, it started to spread outwards,”  Owens said. 

It is important for SCHS students in the student section to respect the other students, student section leaders, as well as anyone else that comes through the doors of SCHS. While taking part in the student section this year or at any point it’s important to remember how to implement PRIDE into student section etiquette. 

 

“Chaos every single time… line up in class, how it’s supposed to be organized and follow seniority for the rows,” student section leader senior Gavin Vaughn said.

There has been discussion about switching the placement of the student section and the band to put the students on the right side with the stairs.

Clearly the caution tape doesn’t work…if we switch then we have access to the stairs on the end, so we may be able to have more room

 “Clearly the caution tape doesn’t work…if we switch then we have access to the stairs on the end, so we may be able to have more room,” said student section leader Ana McAlister. 

SCHS student section leaders have a few ideas about best running the student section through organization, but it’s important to remember the basics as well. 

“Even if we’re down, still stay involved and keep cheering; it’s kinda hard to come back if there’s no energy,” student section leader and senior varsity basketball player James Warner said.  

As this winter season keeps playing and the spring season approaches, remember to have respect for all students, and represent St. Charles High school with pride and all aspects of the community.
