Each week students at Covington HS are encouraged to submit their names for a Spirit Couch drawing that is held at a Friday pep rally. The person whose name is drawn gets to choose three guests to join him or her that evening on the Spirit Couch, which is set up on the sideline of the football field. The winner and guests are treated to pizza, snacks, and soft drinks and can watch the game from this prized position. They are also provided with various spirit items—a game cup, spirit ribbon, pom poms, and noisemakers.
The Spirit Couch can also be used during special assemblies. These are the “best seats in the house” for the special assembly. Students and staff purchase tickets for a raffle to sit in the VIP section at the assembly.
