More pajama days, should they be allowed?

Students are filled with so much joy when they realize there is a pajama day coming up. They can come to school and be comfortable all day, which gives them motivation to attend school. If we are expected to show up and learn as early as we do, we should be able to dress comfortably, as long as it isn’t distracting to others. 

By introducing an increased number of pajama days, schools can make attending classes more enjoyable. This can help increase student engagement and participation. When students look forward to attending school, it creates higher attendance rates, making the school look better. This also gives the opportunity for students to show their unique pajama styles. It allows for a creative outlet where students can express themselves, boosting their confidence and sense of individuality.

Pajama days foster a sense of togetherness and belonging within the school community. When students and educators participate in experiences like pajama days, it can create a sense of unity and school spirit.

School days can become repetitive, leading to boredom and decreased motivation. Pajama days provide a break from the norm, injecting excitement into the school routine, and helping to keep students energized and motivated. Cozy pajamas can create a comfortable and relaxed environment, promoting better well-being and reducing stress.

When asked her thoughts on the topic Abby Saxfield stated, “ I don’t think there should be set pajama days. We should be able to come to school and wear what we want on a daily basis, as long as it is not explicit.” Most students can agree on this but some might say otherwise. Opposers might think that it takes away from the professional image of the school, and doesn’t prepare students for their future. 

While pajama days can be a great addition to the school calendar, it’s important to balance fun and maintaining an appropriate educational environment.

My name is Alexis Bias, I am a Senior at Marion Center Area High School and a third year in the Graphics program at the Indiana County Technology Center. I am also involved in the National Honor Society and National Technical Honor Society. Last school year I tried to contribute as much as possible to the Stinger Newspaper, but couldn't do as much as I wanted to since I couldn't participate in clubs. This year I have had the opportunity to join the Stinger Newspaper Crew, and School Scribes at the Indiana County Technology Center as well. Ultimately, being a part of the Newspaper Club is giving me the opportunity to better my writing and journalism skills, plus give people throughout the school a way to get their opinions and ideas out.
