Millburn High School Classes will battle it out tonight in a test of will and skill as 12-member teams from each grade take on one another in scooter races, three-legged races, tug-of-war, eating contests, lip sync and more - all in the name of raising money for a good cause.
SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) organized the event along with with class officers from each grade level. Battle of the Classes is the culmination of Millburn High School’s Spirit Week, during which SADD has tallied up who has shown the most spirit by dressing up for Pajama Day, Decades Day, Halloween Day, Holidays and on Friday, Class Color Day.
In an effort to show the most spirit, each class decorated a hallway (see photos).
Classes have been earning points for participating in the activities, and other fundraisers have also added to the point totals during the week.
The Key Club held a food drive and the class that brought in the most food won points for the big night. The Make-A-Wish club is hosting penny wars, where classes are competing to fill their jugs with the most money. The money will be split between Make-A-Wish Club and the winning grade. At Friday’s Battle of the Classes, DCH Millburn AUDI will bring two cars to the school, and classes will compete to see who can fill the cars with the MOST coats for a coat drive. The coats will be donated to CHIRAG, Central Himalayan Rural Action Group, and the students in the club will count up the points.
Friday’s Battle of the Classes will start with the Chorus singing the National Anthem, two students performing a dance and then it's on to the competition. In October, students nominated each other to be on teams of 12 representing each grade. These teams have worked hard during the past couple of weeks practicing. SADD is charging $5 per ticket. The winning class will split the money with SADD as their reward. SADD uses the funds to create safe driving awareness programs in the school with the support of DCH Millburn AUDI.
The games begin at 7 p.m. at the .
