This year, Webb Day, the all-school, class-versus-class event is making a huge comeback. For the classes of 2021 and 2022, this year will be their first Webb Day.

Webb Day is run by Student Government and takes place on two separate occasions: Webb Night and Webb Day. Webb Night takes place on Friday, March 15th, 2019 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and will include events like Just Dance, Jeopardy, arm wrestling, and Super Smash Bros.  

Webb Day will be split up into different sports events. It will be on Saturday, March 16th, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.. Students can sign up for games like dodgeball, ultimate frisbee, tug-o-war, earth ball and basketball.

You can sign up for each event by checking out the SignUpGenius your class officers sent to you on Outlook. However, if you play a varsity sport, you cannot sign up for that particular sport.

Last year, Webb Day did not make the cut for events put on the calendar. Sara Hagiwara (‘20), junior class president, said, “Not many people went in the year 2017 and not very many people seemed to want it. In the end, Theme Nights was re-scheduled towards the end of the year, leaving us very little time for another event.”

Hoping to make this year’s Webb Day a more popular event, the campus will be closed on Friday night to encourage boarding students to stay on campus and show some class spirit.  

In 2016, during my freshman year, Webb Day was a grand event. I remember the WSC class of 2019 class even beat the seniors, class of ‘16, at tug-o-war. It was a big deal because the senior class that year was, well, tremendous. But our puberty-struck freshman guys saved the day.  

Webb Day was one of the events that really bonded the class of 2019 together and it would be awesome to see that same kind of energy be brought back to the school again.  

Tensions can run high, especially in class-versus-class competitions. Remember to be respectful of everyone, play fair, and participate.

May the best class win!
