“We accidently matched with this outfit before, so we knew that everyone had this outfit. When we heard that it was [twin day], we just told each otherto wear this again,” Fa said.

On Jan. 23, students will be dressing up as Superheroes or Supervillains. Students are asked to participate in an Instagram challenge with the hashtags “savemvhs” or “takeovermvhs.” The winners of the Instagram challenges will be announced at the upcoming rally on Friday.

“I was thinking about villains, and there weren’t many, so I was thinking about Disney, and I was, like, ‘Scar’s pretty easy’” freshman Christina Schuler said.

“I didn’t have much time, so I just printed the logo out[[,]] and then I asked my parents if they had anything, like a cape, from Halloween, and that was about it,” junior Ketaki Malaviya said.

“We chose Powerpuff girls because it’s a favorite childhood superhero of ours,” sophomore Emily Leung said.

“And it’s less mainstream than Superman or Batman, so we thought that it would be cool to go with an Asian theme that correlates with the Asian theme of our school,” sophomore Michelle Wang said.

“This was something that I pulled up at the last moment,” senior Arjun Krishna said. “I felt that I should come out and show some spirit, and I’m a spirited Californian, so why not show some Californian pride?”
