Cheers, tug-of-war, relay races, and spirit are all elements of Archer’s annual Color Wars celebration. Color Wars was initially planned to occur Friday, Feb. 15. However, due to the rain, Color Wars was rescheduled to take place on March 1.

Student Council Executive Board member Nia Mosby ’20 said that due to the rain, students would not be able to set up for Color Wars.

“Initially, we were going to have people do door decorations tonight after school, but because of the rain, it would be harder to do our decorations and painting outside and movement of even the paper  — putting it onto the doors and possibly that being torn down to the rain and the winds,” Mosby said.

Mosby said the board was looking forward to having Color Wars last week so that it would be a fun Friday right after Valentines Day.

“I am still looking forward to it and it should be just as fun,” Mosby said.

11th-grade class representative Angelica Gonzalez said she is disappointed but sees this as an opportunity.

“I think as class rep, I was a little bit upset because Sophie, Lauren and I planned a lot for tomorrow, but I think now because we have more time, we can go even more full out with all of our decorations and Color Wars as a whole,” Gonzalez said. “We have more time to hype up our class, so we are excited for that part.”
