On Thursday, October 13, Hudson Catholic students and faculty members participated in Superheroes vs. Disney tag day.
Students dressed up in characters ranging from old to recent, and showed off their creative minds coming together. It was very charming to see some students coming out of their boxes and showing off their artistic side.
From colorful shirts, to multi-colored funky pants, capes, and even masks, everyone got to know each other’s interests and what stories and superheroes that they are interested in. Students wore make up, cute headbands, fluffy tutus, and sparkly crowns to match. The most common Disney characters were Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Tinker Bell, Stitch, and Ariel were also spotted too!The Commentator approached a few students about their impressions of the day.
“It was nice seeing people without uniforms,” senior Christopher Delgado commented.
When we asked senior Jhette Lafond-Favieres to get a girl’s point of view on the tag day, she responded somewhat differently.
“At first I didn’t like the idea of superheroes vs Disney, but I liked where some of the students decided to take it and how creative they got. I appreciated the creativity,” Lafond-Favieres said.
Senior Raquel Garner expressed similar feelings to Lafond-Favieres.
“I think that the tag day was an overall success because a lot of people went all out. It was nice to see people having school spirit and participating,” Garner said.
Other students implied that it was a pleasant change from what we usually do every year.
Junior Jordan Diaz, who came dressed as Winnie the Pooh, said “Winnie the Pooh was a big part of my childhood. He was one of my many favorite characters among Tigger, Kanga, Roo, Piglet, and Rabbit.”
We also asked Ms. Diaz what other characters would she have come dressed as for Disney vs. Superheroes day.
“It would be a tie between Simba and Stitch,” Diaz said. “I’m more of a Disney fan than I am of superheroes. Disney is life.”
