This year WGHS announced the beginning of Class Wars, a battle of the grade levels.

This year WGHS announced the beginning of Class Wars, a battle of the grades.
For the 23-24 school year, students will be encouraged to attend school events and scan the QR codes placed at them. These scanned codes give the student’s grade a point. It’s seniors vs juniors and freshman vs sophomores. Whoever gets the most scans wins.
Here is who Elena Welch, a senior at WGHS, isn’t sure which will win the senior vs junior part, “I don’t know who will win. Seniors?” And for the sophomores and freshmen? “Sophomores, because freshmen are silly gooses.” When asked how she felt about the class wars Elena said, “I mean they’re okay. I just feel like it’s another reward system.”
Shannon Hays (11) thinks that the class wars are a way to get more people involved and go to things while having the classes compete against each other. She also revealed who will win the wars, “Honestly, I think Sophomores because I don’t know if they’re ahead right now but I think they care the most about it than everyone.”
Freshman, Jack Henrich, predicts that freshmen will win, “because they’re awesome.” He goes on to say how he feels about the class wars. “I feel like people might go up and down in score, but I think it's gonna be, like, a good ending.” What rewards should we have? Jack suggests, “free food from the vending machine.”
While the class wars sound like a good idea, does anything need to be changed about them? Should WGHS do more things like this? Here’s an idea from Shannon. “I think the PBIS store is good. Maybe a free day for that..” Let VIRIDIAN know what you think.
For the first event, seniors and freshmen were the winners, both earning 100 points. Now Seniors are in the lead with 400 points and sophomores are beating freshmen by 100 points. So who will win? We’ll have to wait and see. The war is on.
