High School Spirit Week Shirt Causes Controversy

Posted: Updated:

T-shirts for a high school spirit week are causing controversy in Arizona.

The T-shirts read "WTF," but underneath in smaller print, they read "We're The Falcons," the school's mascot.

The principal reportedly came up with the design and students see nothing wrong with the shirts. However, some parents say that the slogan sends the wrong message.

"I'm on the fence," says one parent. But other parents and students really like the design.

"It's not that bad," says a student. "It's just showing our school spirit."

"I don't have a problems with this. I think the school is clever in their marketing. They do this with a lot of current pop culture slogans. They try to connect with the kids, and this is a way to show falcon pride," opines Heather Calderone, another parent who really likes the T-shirts.

"My mom told me to get one, so I'm pretty sure she's okay with it," another student told a FOX 10 reporter.

But some students don't think the T-shirts should be sold to students, especially when they found out an administrator designed the shirt.

"I don't think a person of that kind of figure should be encouraging that kind of behavior toward us as students," said a freshman at the school.
