Student Government Association students are responsible for picking the homecoming and spirit week themes every year with the intention for all students to participate and show school spirit.

The theme of homecoming this year is “Down by the Sea” and many of the spirit week selections are variations, if not the same as last year.

“SGA makes a decision as a group, but the members of SGA represent the population of Oak Ridge students,” said SGA Vice President Jayden Smith.  However, some students feel excluded from an event that is supposed to reflect school spirit and pride.
