JAMMIN THE GYM

School spirit shines at Forest Grove High School
by: Chase Allgood Students stepped to the line to shoot baskets and possibly win prizes during Jam the Gym at Forest Grove High School. The fifth annual event, which is intended to boost school spirit, was sponsored by the Applied Business Club.

It's all about spirit, and people got into the swing of things Friday night at Forest Grove High School.

Students, staff and community members jammed the FGHS gymnasium as an expression of their school spirit, said Luke Holscher, who advises the Applied Business Club that sponsors the event.

'Through sponsorships, the club was able to raffle off a Playstation3 and give away over $300 in cash and prizes,' noted Holscher, a PE teacher at the local high school. 'Jam the Gym is held when varsity girls and varsity boys basketball teams both play at home on the same night.

'We try to fill the gym with as many people as possible to promote school spirit.'
