CLARK, NJ - The Arthur L. Johnson High School Student Council recently held the Annual Class Color War. This is a long-standing tradition at ALJ which includes Penny Wars for charity, hall decorating and a class color competition.

Each grade was assigned a color. Freshman were silver, sophomores were white, juniors were Carolina blue, and seniors were navy blue. All the grades decorated their hallways in their designated color to display their classes spirit.On the last day, students wore their color to support their class.

The freshman’s hallway, decked out in silver won the competition. There was also the Penny Wars in which each grade donated loose change into their grades bucket. This raised $65 dollars, with a majority of the money coming from the seniors, who won this challenge. Coins collected in this challenge were donated to the "Change for Change" initiative hosted by the National Honor Society. Any dollar bills were used to help offset the costs of crowns, tiaras and sashes for the Homecoming King and Queen ceremony at the end of the week.

Sophomore Leila Thompson said, “Even though the sophomores didn’t win, it was super fun to decorate the hallway and have everyone dress up.” “Overall, the class color war,” said Mr. Bucior, school Vice Principal, “is yet another great way to show all the school spirit there is at Johnson.”
