LIVINGSTON, NJ — In the days leading up to their final holiday weekend as Livingston High School (LHS) students, members of the Class of 2021 expressed their Lancers pride through Spirit Week events that culminated with the annual LHS Senior Games on Thursday night and a “Green Out” on Friday.

With proper COVID-19 protocols in place, Spirit Week provided seniors with an opportunity to gather safely as a class to kick off the beginning of the end of their high school careers.

“With the voting of our grade, we decided on appropriate themes throughout the week that included Pajama Day, Superhero Day, 80’s Day, Senior Games and Green Out,” said senior class officer Ronni Agmoni. “On Thursday, we had Senior Games, and that was a huge success. Many students came and participated. Hopefully, next time, we can have an even greater turn out.”

Throughout the week, seniors came to school decked in themed outfits, including pajamas on Monday, superhero costumes on Tuesday and 80’s-themed clothing on Wednesday. During lunch on Wednesday, the Class of 2021 also met outside for a celebratory senior picnic, where the seniors received free sandwiches from Livingston’s Tony Boys Sandwich House that Agmoni said significantly improved their gathering experience.

“At first, we struggled with the overall excitement regarding the senior picnic; but in hopes of enhancing student participation, what better reason to come than to receive some free Tony Boys?” said Agmoni, who also thanked the Home-School Association (HSA) for supporting the Spirit Week events.

During the week, the students also buried a Class of 2021 time capsule sponsored by the Livingston Education Association and Livingston Education Foundation that will be opened 30 years after their graduation from LHS.

After representing their individual Senior Games teams on Thursday by wearing their team colors to school, the students returned to class on Friday dressed in green to demonstrate their Lancers spirit.

The Blue Team emerged victorious at Thursday’s Senior Games, which were held outside in accordance with the state’s COVID-19 protocols. Additional protocols such as social distancing, wearing masks and designated arrival times for students also kept students safe throughout the week.

Spirit Week marked the first of several exciting events planned for Livingston seniors over the next month, which will include additional milestones such as senior prom, award nights and graduation. Details about how these upcoming events will be handled are forthcoming.
