Doing it B18 is what Deerfield’s school spirit is all about. Whether in the classroom, on the stage, or on the sports field, Deerfield students are always talking about bringing their “A game,” “going big, or going home,” and giving their performance “all they’ve got.” Thus, the cheerleaders, along with the Class of 2018, thought there would be no better slogan for this school year than one which incorporates and further cultivates this energy on campus.
Doing it B18 means more than just getting rowdy and losing our heads at sporting events; it’s a state of mind. A large portion of doing it B18 involves simply showing up, in more ways than one.
For example, Deerfield offers amazing opportunities for students to exhibit their talents, such as dance showcases, music concerts, theatrical performances, and sporting events, just to name a few. By both taking advantage of these opportunities and making the effort to attend these events, we, as a community, are taking pride in our school and in each other.
To do it B18 also means to get out of our comfort zones; we have to push ourselves and each other be the best versions of ourselves. We “brought it back” with the Class of 2016. We established our sense of love and community with the Class of 2017’s “Fam17y.” And now, we need to prove that we can not only keep it here and remain a strong family, but that, this year, we can do it B18ger than ever.
To the Class of 2018, this is our time. This is our year. To everyone, let’s make every moment count and DO IT B18!
